View Wade & Glenwood repaving in a larger map
Glenwood Avenue will be closed all day Saturday to westbound traffic -- and painfully slow for eastbound traffic -- between St. Mary's Street and Five Points, as part of a repaving project.
NCDOT says westbound Glenwood traffic will be detoured onto St. Mary's Street and Fairview Road while Glenwood is closed between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday. Eastbound drivers will be funneled into a single lane, so they should consider taking the long way, too.
Crews will be putting down a final pavement layer between Alexander Road and St. Mary's Street. NCDOT says it is necessary to close the narrow road for safety reasons because there is not enough room for vehicles and the construction equipment.
Glenwood is being repaved between Woman's Club Drive and Wade Avenue, with the work to be finished by June 11.
