This past week, NCDOT closed a portion of New Town Road between Village Hall and Marvin Road from Monday through Wednesday, in order to remove a dying oak tree that was leaning into towards the roadway.

We strive to provide advanced notice of all road closures, however, the Village was only notified of the closure on Monday while the road was being closed.

We appreciate and thank everyone for their patience while this issue was being addressed. While it was a shame to lose such a large tree, ensure the safety of those traveling on New Town Road is important.
