GREENSBORO – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors plan to close a section of Interstate 73 in Guilford County for a few nights starting this week.
I-73 North is scheduled to be closed at the I-40 interchange from midnight to 6 a.m. Thursday and Friday. 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 closure is needed for the ongoing project to rehabilitate nearly 7 miles of Interstate 73/U.S. 421 between I-40 and I-85. The work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Drivers should be on the lookout for crews working in this area and allow extra time for the detour.
