According to NCDOT, River Road between Jabbertown Road and Old Baker Avenue will have alternating lane closures starting Tuesday, September 2 at 9 a.m.
This is part of a widening project that will improve the safety of the road. Crews will provide a new turning lane to Rob Gandy Blvd.
Officials are asking drivers to take Dosher Cutoff Road to Southport Supply Road, then back onto River Road as a detour.
The project is expected to be completed by September 22.
