The reprieve from a detour courtesy of the winter weather threat is over. The detour begins Wednesday at Fire Tower and Corey Roads in Greenville.

Your can still travel Fire Tower, but during this construction phase you cannot turn onto Corey Road.

Traffic is being detoured down Fire Tower Road to County Home Road to Worthington Road. Local traffic only will be allowed down Corey Road.

The Department of Transportation says the work will be done on Monday, March 23.



Officials delay the closure of Corey Road in the Firetower Road construction project due to the threat of snow Sunday night into Monday morning.

The closure was supposed to take place Monday March 2, but has been delayed until Wednesday, March 4th. That's when the intersection of Firetower and Corey road is scheduled to be shut down for three weeks because of the major construction project.

The Fire Tower Road Project requires that this intersection be brought to a final grade of approximately 2 to 3 feet above the existing pavement. A complete closing of this intersection is required to perform this work.

Traffic will be detoured down Fire Tower Road to County Home Road to Worthington Road. Local Traffic only will be allowed down Corey Road.
