NCDOT TO BEGIN WORK ALONG BENSON’S MAIN STREET
STORMWATER PIPE REPLACEMENT AND RESURFACING IN THE WORKS
NCDOT will be replacing stormwater pipes beginning in mid to late February along Main Street. Work could begin as early as next week (2-19-18). NCDOT expects the duration of work to last 45 days. Portions of Main Street will be closed temporarily throughout this process — detours will be put in place as the work progresses.
For the duration of this project, traffic will be detoured at Lee and Main and at US301 and Main. Local traffic will still be able to access downtown Main Street using cross streets. Traffic on US301 will be impacted with lane closures and detours for up to a week. All detours will be clearly marked for the duration of the work.
“In the next few months, you will see Main Street transform. These are much needed upgrades and the first step in ensuring Benson’s businesses are safe in another extreme weather event,” said Public Works Director Tim Robbins.
This project is in preparation for the future resurfacing of Main Street.
“We want to thank NCDOT for not only upgrading our stormwater pipes along Main Street, but also for its planned resurfacing — this will be a monumental improvement to our town,” he added.
***We will continue to send out updates on this project as work begins and more information becomes available***
