Highway 301 In Smithfield Requires Temporary Lane Closure

The N.C. Department of Transportation has closed the right lane of Highway 301 South (Brightleaf Boulevard) to repair pavement near the intersection of South Fifth Street.

The DOT closed the lane Thursday night to allow maintenance crews to repair buckling pavement.  Crews hope to reopen the lane by April 16th.

Drivers passing through the work zone should slow down, pay attention and be alert for highway workers.
