Route 7N Beatties Ford Road Northlake    

Major Detour for McIntyre Creek Bridge Reconstruction

*******NCDOT has delayed the McIntyre Creek Bridge Reconstruction until Monday, June 16 at 9 a.m.
Route 7N will remain on regular schedule until the bridge closes on Monday.  At that time this detour will go into effect.**********

Beginning Thursday, June 12 until Friday, September 17, Beatties Ford Road will be closed to through traffic between Sunset Road and Lakeview Road.  This closure is due to the construction work by North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) for the replacement of the McIntyre Creek bridge near Hornet’s Nest Park.

As a result of this closure, Route 7N will be on detour between Sunset Road and Lakeview Road.  All bus stops on Beatties Ford Road north of Sunset Road, as well as all bus stops along Trinity Road and Lakeview Road, will not be served during this time.

Bus stops on Sunset Road between Beatties Ford Road and Reames Road normally served only by the 7S will also serve the 7Nduring this detour.  In addition, two pairs of temporary bus stops will provide service to Route 7N along Reames Road.  One pair of stops will be located on Reames Road at Lawnmeadow Drive.  Lawnmeadow Drive provides an accessible path to Trinity Road via Feldbank Drive.  Another pair of stops will be located on Reames Road at Lakeview Road.

CATS apologizes for any inconvenience this detour may cause our customers and the short notice since CATS just received notification of the construction work June 5.
