On Wednesday and Thursday, the road crews will move to Beatty Road near Dillsboro for more construction. Beatty Road will be closed at 11321, or approximately three-tenths of a mile from U.S. 50 between 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day.
Addresses north of 11321 will use U.S. 50 for access while those south of the closure will use Lauman of Schmaltz Roads for access.
