All four lanes of West Fleming Drive in Morganton will be closed from Burkemont Avenue to the eastern entrance of Morganton Heights Shopping Center Sunday (November 17) from 6 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. The City will be closing the road so crews can work to trim trees away from power lines in the area.
Traffic will be routed around the road closure while work is being performed, but the Morganton Heights Shopping Center will still be accessible during this time. Signage will instruct traffic to use Burkemont Avenue, West Union Street, and Carbon City Road to go around the detour. Semi-trucks will be required to take a longer detour.
Tractor trailers will need to take Fleming Drive to East Union Street, then continue on Kirksey Drive to Sanford Drive, and then proceed around the Highway 64 bypass until they come back around to Morganton Heights on Fleming Drive.
Once the work is completed, all four lanes of Fleming Drive will be reopened.
