GREENSBORO – State transportation contract crews are planning multiple closures over the next week as part of an interstate improvement project in Guilford County.
The closures are needed for the ongoing project to rehabilitate nearly 7 miles of Interstate 73/U.S. 421 between I-40 and I-85.
- The ramp to continue on I-73 South where it joins U.S. 220 South at Exit 95 on the south side of Greensboro is scheduled to close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights. The detour for this closure will have drivers stay straight and take Exit 124 for South Elm-Eugene Street to turn around and follow I-85 South back to access I-73 South by taking Exit 122 and Exit 122B.
- I-73 North is scheduled to be closed at the I-40 interchange at Exit 103 from midnight to 6 a.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Traffic will be detoured to take Exit 103B for I-40 West/U.S. 421 North, take the Gallimore Dairy Road exit and head back on I-40 East to return to I-73 North.
- The ramp from I-40 West to I-73 North at Exit 212B is set to close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning next Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, with a detour also utilizing Gallimore Dairy Road.
All this work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Drivers should be mindful of crews working in this area and allow extra time for the detours.
