NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

The NCDOT will close Parmele Road (SR 1335), 1 mile east of  NC 133, in both directions while crews work to replace a drainage pipe.

The closure will begin August 1 at 7 a.m. and run continuously through August 12 at 5 p.m.

The NCDOT's Maintenance Department will replace an existing pipe with a larger aluminum culvert which will help reduce the flooding upstream as well as reduce the possibility of water overtopping the road during severe rain events.
