1. Mt. Holly road work begins Sept. 17
In case you missed the Nixle alert, beginning on Monday, Mount Holly Road will be closed to through traffic between Holly Branch Road and North Salem Road to replace a brook culvert. What's that, you ask? It's a pipe that a stream flows through, said Bedford's Highway Commissioner, Kevin Winn. It needs to be fixed, it may take several days and through traffic (with the exception of residents) will not be allowed for the duration of the project.
