A detour will be set up to either Highway 9 North or to Coopers Gap Road to Lake Adger Road, or from the lower side a detour will be accessible from Silver Creek to Lake Adger Road. 

County officials said this week that the road could be closed for several months in order for the state to replace the bridge and get the road reopened. 

Anyone with questions about the upcoming road closure or bridge replacement can contact the NCDOT at 828-891-7911 or the local NCDOT office at 828-894-8980.
