Greensboro - The N.C. Department of Transportation will install a new traffic signal at the Liberty Road and Neelley Road intersection, prompting alternating lane closures.
A traffic light is being installed at this location as part of the Neelley Road Bridge project.
To allow crews to install the new traffic signals, various lanes on both roads at this intersection will be closed intermittently between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday, Aug. 8, until Monday, Aug. 15.
As drivers approach the new signals at the intersection, they are advised to follow these right-of-way rules:
The first vehicle to the intersection has the right of way ahead of any vehicle that has not yet arrived;
When two or more vehicles reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle to the right has the right of way;
The vehicle with the right of way may move straight ahead or, if legal and after signaling, turn left or right;
When two facing vehicles approach an intersection at the same time, both drivers can move straight ahead or turn right. If one driver is going straight while the other wants to turn left, the driver who wants to turn left must wait. The driver who is traveling straight ahead has the right of way; and
Even with the right of way, remember to use the appropriate turn signals and be careful to avoid hitting other vehicles and pedestrians.
