Temporary water outage in Blowing Rock Nov. 12

by Staff Reports

As part of the N.C. Department of Transportation's project to widen U.S. 321 to four lanes in Blowing Rock, crews must relocate the water main on Old East Cornish Road and tie it into the Town of Blowing Rock's water system at the old Scotchman's gas station. This will require that they temporarily turn off the water to residents and businesses in that area on Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The work was originally scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 7, but has been rescheduled due to forecasted rain.


Residents and businesses along the following roads should expect to be affected and should plan accordingly:

Old East Cornish Road (across from West Cornish Road)
West Cornish Road
Ransom Street
Hill Street
Morningside Drive
Yonahlossee Road (U.S. 221)
Jenson Drive
Wallingford Road
Green Street
Mayview Drive
Norwood Circle
The Cone Condominiums


Tips for businesses and residents:

Leave a cold water tap or spigot slightly open; leaving a hot water tap open may cause  damage to hot water units.  Seasonal residents may want to have a neighbor or caretaker check their property as well. 

Collect water in advance for use during this time.  


Anyone who has questions or needs additional information, may call the project information line at 828-964-3260.
