NCDOT to monitor repairs

MILLS RIVER — The N.C. Department of Transportation will monitor repairs to a section of Interstate 26 in Polk County damaged in a crash on May 28. JBR Environmental and Sloan Construction have been hired by the trucking company’s insurance to complete an environmental assessment and repave the westbound lanes near mile marker 70.

An NCDOT inspector will oversee the project to ensure the work meets federal and state requirements. Crews will close the left lane of westbound traffic Monday evening at 5 p.m. in order to begin soil cleanup. Milling and paving operations are expected to begin on Wednesday. Exact times of lane closures will be determined as the work progresses.
