East Asheville stormwater maintenance will close some streets

The City of Asheville Public Works Stormwater Division will close Thompson Street at the intersection of Stoner Drive Tuesday, March 8, to replace a failing culvert that is creating a sinkhole.


We will have detour signs posted going up Stoner Drive to Fairview Road then back down East Street to Thompson and vice-versa East Street to Fairview Drive to Stoner down to Thompson Street.


The Water Resources Department will be lowering an 8-inch water line to allow stormwater to replace this failing culvert and this could take some time. We anticipate Thompson Street will remain closed until sometime Thursday. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please reference the attached a map with the closure and detour route.
