As Tropical Storm Michael brings heavy rains to the region, the City of Morganton is closing Bethel Park and the Catawba River Greenway at two of its access points until tomorrow.

The Catawba River Greenway will be closed at the Greenlee Ford Access point near the Catawba River Soccer Complex and the Rocky Ford Access Point off of Lenoir Road.

“The river is rising and could lead to dangerous issues from potential flooding,” said Parks and Recreation Director Rob Winkler.
