The N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of two Brunswick County roads while MOTSU railroad crossings are replaced.

The section of Buckeye Road at the railroad crossings, near Rachel Wynd, is scheduled to be closed between March 1 and April 2. 

While the road is closed, a signed detour will be in place following Old Lanvale and Lanvale roads, U.S. 17, Carol Lynn Drive and Rachel Wynd to access points on either side of the railroad tracks.

Then, between March 24 and April 21, a section of East Boiling Springs Road at the railroad crossing, near Fifty Lakes Drive, is scheduled to be closed to traffic.

During this closure, a signed detour will follow Funston Road and N.C. 87 to access points on either side of the railroad tracks.

Drivers should plan ahead as their commute may take longer and use caution when traveling near the work zones.
