LENOIR COUNTY, NC (WITN) - Repairs continue more than a year later after devastation from Hurricane Florence and some of those repairs might affect your commute to work.

NCDOT officials are closing both directions of Neuse Road, just east of Kinston, at 8 a.m. for crews to replace a crossline pipe that was damaged during Florence.

The road will open back up at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Drivers coming from Kinston will have to take Caswell Station Road, then turn left onto British Road and left on Gray-Tilgman in order to get back to Neuse Road.
