Canton road to close for construction
North Carolina Department of Transportation crews will be working to straighten out a heavily traveled road in downtown Canton starting this week.
Penland Street will be closed from Main Street to Birch Street (in front of Riverview Farm and Garden) starting Thursday, Sept. 19 until about Nov. 16.
Cash Jones, manager of Riverview Farm and Garden, said customers will still be able to access parking at the store via the first entrance off Penland Street.
The area is expected to be congested around 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. when students are traveling to and from Pisgah High School and Canton Middle School.
