Nov. 29, 2012. The N.C. Department of Transportation is working in coordination with the town of Blowing Rock to relocate a water line along U.S. 321 as part of the ongoing road widening project. The relocation work is scheduled to begin on Monday, Dec. 3, at 9 a.m. Some residents and businesses will see either low or no water pressure for four to six hours.
The Mayview area of Blowing Rock will be affected, including:
- U.S. 221 from Main Street to Laurel Lane
- Jensen Drive
- The Cones residential area
