Flooding

Portions of Betty Ross Park were under water on Monday.

Areas throughout Lincoln County, especially those along the South Fork River, saw flooding issues over the weekend and into the beginning of the week. Both South Fork Road and Hoover Road in Lincolnton are closed in both directions due to bridge repairs. Betty G. Ross Park in Lincolnton was closed on Sunday and Monday due to flooding. For up to date information on road closures visit www.drivenc.gov for travel updates. Once a road is open again, maintenance staff will update the website.
