Part of Love Mill Road closed today

A portion of Love Mill Road near the Union-Stanly county line will be closed much of Tuesday for repairs, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.

The road is closed at the bridge over the Rocky River, south of Locust. Crews will be working to remove debris that has built up against some of the bridge supports.

The closure is planned until about 3 p.m. Until then, motorists can follow a signed detour on Rock Hole Road, N.C. 200 and N.C. 218, back to Love Mill Road.
