Sinkhole forces Mooresville to close part of N.C. 3

Mooresville will close one of two lanes of Iredell Avenue (N.C. 3) in downtown from 7 p.m. to midnight Monday because of a sinkhole near Mitchell Community College, Town Manager Erskine Smith said.

The lane will be closed between South Broad and North Academy streets, so crews can repair a sewer line. The work should be complete by midnight, officials said.

The town is doing the work in the evening to minimize backups. Workers with flags will alert drivers to the closing.
