Road Closures & Utility Work

It is necessary for the Town's Public Works department to temporarily close roads and/or shut off water in order to perform maintenance or repairs to the Town's infrastructure. When these closures and shut offs are known in advance, we will post them here so that you may alter your schedule and driving routes accordingly. For any questions or concerns, please call us at (910) 692‑1983, weekdays from 8am to 5pm. 

Our after-hours emergency number is 910-692-1627.
