Motorists needing to access Duke Street (U.S. 501) or Gregson Street (State Road 1327) from I-85 North during this time should use the exit at Roxboro Street (Exit 177) to I-85 South to Duke/Gregson Street (Exit 176.)

DOT officials say that the lane closure is necessary to install overhead signs as part of the I-85 widening project.
