Some drivers will find themselves taking a familiar detour to start off the week. Stokestown-St. Johns Rd. in Pitt County is closed through Tuesday afternoon. The bridge there was replaced last year in a construction project that took several months.
The DOT says the problem is on the road, not on the new bridge.
The detour routes drivers around the road closure using NC 102 and NC 43.
The closure is to make emergency repairs, according to the NC DOT website.
