Section of High Point Road to close near Jamestown

Jun. 11, 2014 @ 01:25 PM

An intersection and part of High Point Road will close for about a month starting this weekend as part of the ongoing upgrade to the road between Greensboro and Jamestown.

On Saturday, weather permitting, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close the intersection of High Point Road and Millis Road/Bonner Drive to realign the intersection as part of the High Point Road widening project.
The closure will allow crews to reroute High Point Road to its new location between Vickery Chapel and Guilford College roads. As part of the intersection realignment, Stanford Road will be permanently closed where it connects to existing High Point Road, according to the DOT.
The work is scheduled to be completed by July 14. During the closure, motorists can use Vickery Chapel Road and the newly constructed section of High Point Road as the detour route.
Work on the $40.1 million High Point Road widening project began in October 2012.  The project involves widening a four-mile section of High Point Road from two lanes to four lanes with a median and constructing a new interchange at Interstate 73, also known as the Greensboro Urban Loop.
The widening project is scheduled to be completed by mid-November 2015, with landscaping and vegetation work continuing until May 2016.
