Also during that time, one lane of northbound I-85 will intermittently be closed, with one lane open at all times.

Motorists traveling North on Guess Road should use the following signed detour: I-85 South to Hillandale Road (Exit 174) to I-85 North

The closures will be in place until Thursday at 6 a.m., and it will be necessary to shift traffic onto temporary lanes as part of the I-85 widening project.
