BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – People who drive on Sloan Road will soon use a new service road to connect to U.S. 17 in Brunswick County.
According to the NCDOT, drivers traveling on U.S. 17 South near Winnabow in Brunswick County should be alert for new directions to access Sloan Drive beginning Feb. 1.
From the DOT:
The Sloan Road/U.S. 17 South intersection is closing and access to Sloan Road will be available using a newly constructed service road that runs from Sloan Drive .52 miles south to U.S. 17.
The change is the result of median construction under way in the area. Message signs will direct motorists.
Motorists traveling U.S. 17 South who need to access Sloan Road should travel to the median crossover south of Zion Church Road and make a U-turn to access Snowfield Road and Sloan Road.
This work is necessary as part of the construction of the Wilmington Bypass.
