NCDOT To Close Part Of NC 42 In Wilson County This Weekend

Starting tomorrow, the NCDOT says expect delays if you are driving in Wilson County. Officials say both directions of N.C. 42 east of U .S. 301 are scheduled to close beginning at 7 p.m.

Construction crews will be installing a larger-diameter drainage pipe underneath the pavement. A detour will send motorists along Varnell Road, Weaver Road and U.S. 301. The closure is expected to end by 6 a.m. April 25, if the weather cooperates.

The pipe upgrade is part of a larger contract by the N.C. Department of Transportation to add a left-turn lane on N.C. 42 for westbound traffic going to the Wilson County landfill. The turn-lane will be added this summer.
