Road Reopening Reduces to Eight the Number Still Closed Due to Florence

BOILING SPRING LAKES – A Brunswick County road damaged by Hurricane Florence is back open to traffic.

A section of East Boiling Spring Road has been closed since the September 2018 hurricane, but reopened to traffic Monday afternoon. The closure allowed the N.C. Department of Transportation to safely replace the nearly 22-foot deep pipe crossing and repair the damaged section of road caused by Hurricane Florence.

The Boiling Spring Lakes road was one of less than a dozen still closed by the September storm, but with its reopening eight North Carolina state-maintained roads remain closed throughout the state.
