Greensboro - The N.C. Department of Transportation must close a section of Johnson Street in both directions between Sandy Ridge Road and Skeet Club Road east of High Point.
The closure is needed so a contractor can install a cross line pipe under the roadway just East of High Point.
Weather permitting, crews will close the road at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Sep. 10. It is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. on Monday, Sep. 12.
Motorists traveling through the area will use Skeet Club Road and Kendale Road as the 3-mile detour.
Transportation officials advise drivers to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
