Last night’s powerful storms have prompted N.C. Department of Transportation maintenance crews to close several roads in Lincoln County.
About 100 trees fell last night in Lincoln County. Several roads remain closed this morning as crews work to remove downed trees on power lines. They include: Ramseur Street, Poston Drive, Pressley Drive, Devine Road, Gates Road, and Hestertown Road.
Cleanup efforts will continue as long as needed to safely reopen the affected roads to traffic.
