N.C. 51 lane closures planned

The N.C. Department of Transportation has scheduled intermittent lane closures Monday and Tuesday on Matthews Township Parkway (N.C. 51) between Sam Newell Road and U.S. 74.

The department will close one lane in each direction between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to perform maintenance work associated with a culvert replacement project that took place last year.

One lane will be open in both directions to traffic, but delays are possible.

Motorists can use Matthews-Mint Hill Road as an alternate route.
