Clear Creek Road closing Oct. 18 for sewer pipe upgrade

Clear Creek Road between Carolina Village Road and Balfour Road is scheduled to be closed for a sewer line installation starting Monday, Oct. 18. The closure is expected to last for about one week.

The road closure is part of the Clear Creek Interceptor Replacement project which consists of the replacing an undersized 18-inch gravity sewer pipe along Clear Creek with 30-inch sewer pipe. The purpose of the project is to provide additional capacity, prevent sanitary sewer overflows and serve future growth.

Motorists are asked to follow signage and be alert for crews working in the area. Detour routes are accessible via Nix Road to the north with connections to Howard Gap and U.S. 64 and via Signal Hill Road to the south with connections to Thompson Street and U.S. 64. The city of Hendersonville and NCDOT have worked with the contractor to develop a plan that causes the shortest amount of disruption and allow this important improvement to the city’s sewer system.
