Durham County Road and Ramp Closures Starting this Weekend.

​​​​DURHAM- Construction will close a portion of Alston Avenue ​starting Friday night at 9, reopening at 6 a.m., Monday​, weather permitting.

The temporary road closure will be in place from Angier Avenue to the on and off ramps of N.C. 147 South. This will also include the ramp from northbound Alston Avenue onto N.C. 147 North. The contractor will be switching traffic from existing lanes to the future southbound lanes so permanent northbound lanes can be constructed.

Southbound Alston Avenue traffic will detour to Main Street, Fayetteville Street, N.C. 147 South, and the Alston Avenue exit.

Alston Avenue North traffic will detour to N.C. 147 South, Briggs Avenue Exit, N.C. 147 North, Fayetteville Street, and Main Street.

Additionally, the Durham Freeway off ramp to Alston Avenue ​will close Friday at 9 p.m. and it is scheduled to reopen two weeks later once construction work on the ramp is complete. Traffic for this closure will use the Fayetteville Street exit and Main Street.

Drivers should use caution when traveling through the detour and be alert to construction crews working in the area.
