Beginning Monday, September 14, North Center Street will be closed between Main Avenue and First Avenue due to construction activity for One North Center, the mixed-use development across from Hickory City Hall. The closure is expected to be in place for approximately one month. Detour routes will be established and clearly marked.
Due to this road closure, a new traffic pattern will be required for utilizing the drive thru behind City Hall to submit utility payments for the City of Hickory. Drivers will need to enter from First Street NE and follow the painted arrows on the pavement to circle around to approach the drive thru window. The map below depicts the new traffic pattern for the drive thru payment window and detour routes for the road closure.
