ALERT: Section of I-40 WB to close this weekend in Greensboro

The closure is needed so crews can safely conduct paving operations and put in a traffic shift at the overpass over US-29.   This will improve the condition of the roadway and to make this section safer for motorists.

A section of westbound Interstate 40 will close this weekend between the I-40/85 split (Exit 131) and the merge at Hwy 29-70 (exit 222). 

The closure will begin on Friday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m., and last through 6 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 18.

There will not be access to I-840 North, McConnell Road and East Gate City Boulevard off I-40 during the closure. Motorists traveling through Greensboro can use the I-85/I-73 Bypass as a detour.  Motorists attempting to access U.S. 29 or U.S. 70 will also have a signed detour.
