Greensboro - N.C. Department of Transportation contract workers will clear trees along a section of Lake Brandt Road as part of demolition for the western portion of the Greensboro Urban Loop project.
The work will require a one-day lane closure from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3, with short intervals where all traffic will be stopped while the trees are being cut.
"More than 12,000 vehicles travel this road daily. While this road will not be completely closed, motorists should consider using Cotswold Avenue as an alternate route," said Resident Engineer Paul Ingram.
Flaggers will be in the roadway directing traffic. Transportation officials urge drivers to be alert while traveling in this area.
The Greensboro Urban Loop is part of the NCDOT's plan to improve traffic flow within and around the city. Construction of the loop will allow traffic to bypass Greensboro and improve congestion on existing Interstate 40, particularly in the loop that includes I-40, I-85 Business and U.S. Routes 29, 70, 220 and 421.
The estimated completion date is March 2018.
