RALEIGH - An
N.C. Department of Transportation project
to improve the intersection of Old Fairground Road and Massengill Pond Road
southeast of Angier in Johnston County will require a 14-day closure of the intersection, starting
Monday, August 25. The closure is needed so crews can realign the intersection
and reverse the traffic pattern from the current setup. The changes are
being made to improve mobility through the area.
Massengill Pond Road currently have to stop at the intersection with Old
Fairground Road, while traffic on Old Fairground Road has the right-of-way to
go through the intersection without stopping. The change will allow drivers on
Massengill Pond Road to go through the intersection, while traffic heading
south on Old Fairground Road will have to stop.
A signed detour will
be in place:
- Going south on Old Fairground Road:
Left on Stephenson Road, right on Zack's Mill Road, right on N.C. 50,
right on Elevation Road, right on Benson-Hardee Road back to Old Fairground
- Going north on Old Fairground Road:
Right on Benson-Hardee Road, left on Elevation Road, left on Zack's Mill
Road, left on Stephenson Road back to Old Fairground Road
- Massengill Pond Road traffic heading towards Old Fairground Road:
Right on Ridge Road, right on Johnston County Road, left on Benson-Hardee
Road back to Old Fairground Road
- Massengill Pond Road traffic coming from Old Fairground Road:
