LOUISBURG — A recently-awarded N.C. Department of Transportation contract will see pipe crossings repaired during the second half of the year in Franklin and Granville counties.

Between July 1 and Sept. 1, contractors from Ralph Hodge Construction Company of Wilson can begin the $1.4 million repair work on Philo White Road and East River Road. Both roads are expected to be open to traffic by Nov. 1.

Though each crossing repair must begin within the two-month window, they each have individual completion timelines.

Repair work on the East River Road crossing over Jumping Run in Franklin County must be completed within 60 days of starting. The thru traffic detour will utilize George Leonard Road and Mort Harris Road.

Work on the Philo White Road crossing over Sand Creek in Granville County must be completed within 30 days of starting. Thru traffic will be directed to Cannady Mill Road and N.C. 86 while repairs are taking place.
