An upcoming lane closure and road work may affect traffic along Old Folkstone Road in Sneads Ferry for six months.

According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, the lane closure will be in effect Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday until June 30 for road maintenance.

The closure allows contractors to grade, drain and widen the shoulders along Old Folkstone Road. There will be one lane closed during the road work period.

According to Division Engineer Karen Collette, the NCDOT reminds motorists to stay alert during this period, drive with caution, obey the posted speed limits and allow extra travel time.
