A stretch of Tryon Road will be closed over the weekend for a state construction project.
The road will be closed to through traffic between Wilmington Street and Lake Wheeler Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday. Road closed signs will be set up between Withers Road and Par Drive near the Raleigh Golf Association golf course, although access to the course will remain open.
The state Department of Transportation is widening Tryon Road, as well as replacing the bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railway tracks near the golf course.
Detour signs will direct people to take Interstate 40 to avoid the closed section of Tryon Road.
