Eastbound section to close, westbound remains open
RALEIGH - Beginning Wednesday, Aug. 27, N.C. Department of Transportation crews will close a section of eastbound Russell Street, between South Cool Spring Street and Gillespie Street in Fayetteville, to replace a storm drain under the roadway.
During the project, motorists traveling east on Russell Street will need to use Gillespie Street, N.C. 87 and U.S. 301 as a detour route. The businesses along this stretch of Russell Street will remain open and are accessible via side streets.
NCDOT maintenance crews will reopen the road by Friday, Oct. 17, weather permitting.
