Johnston County News

CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) – A section of road in Johnston County is set to close Monday morning.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation said a contractor will be replacing the bridge over White Oak Creek. It was built in 1955 and has become “functionally obsolete.” Crews will demolish it and build a new one.

The bridge is located on Winston Road between Interstate 40 and Clayton.

A signed detour will send drivers onto Cornwallis, Amelia, and Guy roads starting at 8 a.m. on Monday.

NCDOT said the road will reopen by next spring.
