The Greensboro City Council isn’t going to adopt a resolution calling this week “Traffic Detour Week” in the city; however, as local drivers can attest, there’s been a whole lot of road work going on in Greensboro lately and those efforts will continue full steam ahead from April 4 to April 11 as work crews engage in what are largely resurfacing projects.
A press release from the city states what everyone already knows: The road construction “will affect traffic flow in those areas.”
One project that could be particularly disruptive will take place on April 6 and April 10 when crews will be working on Brassfield Road between Battleground Avenue and New Garden Road.
Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes in order to avoid work areas.
The schedules for each job are dependent on weather conditions and the availability of materials and equipment.
You can visit www.greensboro-nc.gov/RoadProjects to learn more about lane and road closures and to sign up to receive email notifications about upcoming work on city streets.
All jobs will alternate lane closures from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Here’s a list of the projects:
