[ARCHIVED] Closure scheduled on Vernon Road in Northwest for pipeline crossing

Work zone traffic sign

Part of Vernon Road in the Town of Northwest in Brunswick County will be temporarily closed while crews complete a pipeline crossing for the Kings Bluff Raw Water Transmission Main project.

Starting at 8 a.m., Monday, April 5, Vernon Road will be closed north of the intersection with Mt. Misery Road. Traffic will be detoured via Blue Banks Loop Road to Mt. Misery Road.

The closure is expected to remain in place through Thursday, April 8.

Crews will be completing a road crossing for the new Kings Bluff Raw Water Transmission Main. Once complete, this 14-mile pipeline will convey raw water from the Kings Bluff Pump Station on the Cape Fear River to local water utilities. Construction is expected to be complete in early 2022.

The pipeline is a joint project of CFPUA, Brunswick County, and the Lower Cape Fear Water and Sewer Authority. More information on the project can be found in CFPUA’s 2020 Annual Report.
