Woodland Drive to close Friday
Woodland Drive, road just off of Howell Mill Road in Waynesville, was closed to through-traffic on Friday and is expected to remain closed for 10 weeks.
Nathan Tanner with the Department of Transportation said the tentative closing will allow contractors to do brick construction, and that a crane positioned on Woodland Drive would be blocking the road.
“There will be a detour in place, and we’re working out the exact details,” Tanner said. “There will be a sign in place directing everyone. All people will be able to get to their homes on Woodland Drive.”
Tanner said Woodland Drive has a low traffic volume but the department still wanted to give an early notice of the tentative closing this week.
