A section of U.S. Highway 64 just east of the Martin County town of Jamesville will be closed in both directions beginning August 23 while CSX Transportation performs maintenance and repair on its rail line.

During the closure, CSX will divert traffic onto a 2.4 mile section of Old U.S. 64 between Plymouth and Jamesville. Barricades and detour signage will be in place to guide motorists through the detour route, according to a press release from the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

“Drivers should be mindful of crews in the work zone and factor the detour into their drive times,” stated the release.
