Robeson fair-goers should heed detour

Staff Report

LUMBERTON — There is plenty of fun to be found at the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair, which will celebrate its 70th year beginning Thursday with food, pig races, entertainment, livestock judging and other family-friendly events.

But getting there could be tricky depending on the route.

Fair-goers will need to take a detour this year because of a culvert replacement on N.C. 41 near Marion Road.

Traffic coming from points east should follow the detour signs route along N.C. 72 to West Fifth Street to Starlite Drive to N.C. 41, according to NCDOT. Traffic coming from points north and west of Lumberton should take Exit 17 at Interstate 95, turn right on West Fifth Street, then follow the detour signs to Starlite Drive.

The fair begins Thursday and runs through Oct. 8 at the Robeson County Fairgrounds in Lumberton, which is located at 3750 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
