Part of US 64 closed due to mudslide in Henderson Co.

Road closed

A small part of US 64 is under mud after a slide, according to NCDOT.

They say it happened near the intersection of US 74A in Henderson Co.

A detour using Grant Mountain Road and Slick Rock Road — depending on the intended direction — has been established until the road is cleared.

They say a team will monitor the scene overnight before additional assessments are made Tuesday after sunrise.
