LINCOLNTON––It’s a heavy, heavy haul.

And it’s scheduled for this Tuesday, Sept. 20, according to Lincoln County Emergency Management Co-ordinator Mark Howell. Friday, Howell informed that Lincoln County Emergency Management was notified of this heavy-haul transport of oversized equipment.

“Edwards Moving and Rigging will be conducting a move of oversized equipment for Siemens Energy,” he said. “This move will travel from the Duke Energy Lincoln Combustion Turbine site to Timken on NC-27 East. The move will leave the site at approximately 8 a.m., travelling west on the Old Plank Road.”

He continued that due to the height and weight of the equipment, the haul will follow a route along NC-73, Amity Church and King Wilkinson roads, NC-150, Ivy Church and Buffalo Shoals roads and NC-27 East. Motorists should expect increased travel time and detours.

“This will be a slow-moving process,” said Howell, “and through traffic is advised to avoid these areas during the transport period, as there will be significant impacts to all roadway users. Roadway users are advised to use alternative routes until the transport is completed. Everbridge notifications will be sent out to residents on Monday and Tuesday mornings to notify of the traffic impact.”

Re the closure period, he added, County representatives understand the challenges and inconveniences that commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during this time. They ask for patience and co-operation while this transport is conducted. In case of an emergency, first responders will be granted access to assist residents in as timely manner as possible.
