The City of Statesville will close East Broad Street in both directions between Tradd Street and Salisbury Road on Tuesday and Wednesday. The road will be closed between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Traffic will be detoured to Front Street.

According to Statesville Utility Arborist Shawn Cox, the street closure is necessary to allow a large crane to take down a tree located at 248 E. Broad St. Cox stated a fungus has caused root rot in the tree, making it necessary for removal.
