Greensboro, NC -- Drivers get ready. A Greensboro road that closed more than a year ago, is reopening this week.
The city of Greensboro closed Ballinger Road between New Garden Road and Chimney Rock Road in February 2012 to replace a bridge. During this time, drivers have been taking a detour along Fleming Road to Old Oak Ridge Road to Chimney Rock Road.
Not any more! The Greensboro Department of Transportation (GDOT) officials confirmed to WFMY News 2 that by the end of the week, the detour is going away.
The bridge work is complete and Ballinger Road is scheduled to reopen late Thursday or early Friday.
