Ralph Stephens Road between N.C. 55 and Piney Grove Wilbon Road will close to thru traffic for about three weeks starting Monday, May 11.
The closure is necessary for road widening and to install large storm water pipes underneath the road as part of the Collins Park development. The road is expected to reopen around June 1.
The portion to close is between Wildwood subdivision and the new apartments that are opening in the Southern Crossroads development. Signs will be posted.
The section of Ralph Stephens Road between Piney Grove Wilbon and Avent Ferry Road is not affected and will remain fully open..
