The intersection at Ellis Boulevard and NC 24 in Jacksonville is closing Monday.
The closure is part of the effort to create a new entrance for Camp Lejeune. Access for residents will be limited to the new White Street Extension off Bell Fork Road.
Access to Ellis Boulevard from the south end can be made from a ramp that is part of the construction at the new entrance, but officials say the most convenient travel to this portion of Ellis is to come through the White Street extension.
