N.C. 8 is closed in both directions near Bringle Ferry Road west of Denton after a crash involving a tractor trailer and a logging truck occurred there this morning. The closure is expected to remain in place until around 3 p.m. to allow crews to safely remove the trucks from the roadway.

Until the closure is lifted, motorists should take the following detour route: N.C. 8 to Flat Swamp Road to Buie Road to Denton Road back to N.C. 8.

NCDOT encourages motorists to go slow, pay attention to posted signs and allow plenty of time to reach their destinations safely.
