Beginning next week, the Morganton Heights Shopping Center will experience lane closures due to a bridge replacement project by the N.C. Department of Transportation. The right westbound lane near the center will be closed for approximately two weeks to facilitate the construction of a temporary retaining wall. This development follows the closure of a private road used as an entrance to the shopping complex, expected to last 12-18 months. With the project completion slated for Jan. 11, 2028, residents and visitors are advised to anticipate traffic adjustments and plan their visits accordingly.
