New traffic shift planned in Leland as crews realign Northgate Drive

LELAND, NC (WECT) - Starting Thursday, April 5 at 8 a.m. the westbound lanes of Village Drive in Leland will be shifted.

It's to allow construction crews to realign Northgate Drive, a project that started on Monday.

The traffic shift will last approximately two months and take place between Northgate Drive and Fairview Road.

Some lane closures on Village Road may still take place during construction, but traffic flow into businesses and residences will not be affected.

The project is expected to take a year to finish.
