Both Sides Of Askew Road Closed Until Mid-November

If you are driving near Askew Road, you may need to take a detour.

DOT crews will be closing a portion of Askew Road in Pitt County, beginning Tuesday.

Crews will be working to replace the bridge, which is just southeast of Farmville.

The closure will affect traffic from both directions of Askew Road. After following detour signs, drivers will end up on Ballards Crossroads and Bruce Stickland Road before getting back onto Askew Road.

Crews expect the road to reopen by mid-November.
