Paving of Belmont’s Main Street

September 11, 2007 at 11:20 pm Leave a comment

Crew’s constracted by the NCDOT to repave South Main Street/Armstrong Ford Road from Myrtle all the way out to the Fish Camps have been working hard for the past week and a half.

The paving project has been needed.

Large, heavy trucks having been using this route as a cut-through from both South Carolina and southeast Gastonia to access Hwy 273 and the new I-485. With all the home construction going on in the area, cement mixer trucks have also been using this stretch of road.

The workers have been kind enough to schedule around the school traffic in the morning and late afternoon. One lane is blocked for several minutes and inbound/outbound traffic is alternately routed through the construction.

The result is a very nicely paved road. Just watch out for a while, because it is unmarked pavement, and in the dark approaching the South Fork bridge, the road can be deceiving.
