Travelers along U.S. 64 on the Dare County mainland can expect delays this week for replacement of drainage pipes that run under the roadway.

Maintenance crews from the N.C. Department of Transportation along with Creswell Bridge Construction will be replacing three failed crossline pipes just east of the Alligator River Bridge.

The work is scheduled to take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. May 10-14. Lane closures will be in place on U.S. 64 between the Alligator River Bridge and Brier Hall Road in East Lake, and lengthy delays are possible.

Message boards will be in place in both directions to notify motorists of the delays.
