Greensboro - Thanks to this latest round of heavy rains, engineers with the N.C. Department of Transportation say they must close a section of Orange Grove Road between N.C. 54 and Teer Road while they work to repair a deteriorating pipe under the roadway.
Weather permitting; crews will close a portion of Orange Grove Road at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 29. The road is expected to re-open by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9.
Local traffic will be able to access homes and businesses from either end of Orange Grove Road but will not be able to pass beyond the closure points on either side of the work area. Motorists traveling through the area will use Dairyland Road, Dodson's Crossroads and N.C. 54 as the signed detour route.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
