A portion of Idlewild Road will be closed this weekend so crews can work on the Independence Boulevard freeway conversion project.

The N.C. Department of Transportation said Idlewild Road will be closed between Monroe Road and Cedars East Court, just east of Independence Boulevard, from 8 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday.

The Independence Boulevard project is widening the road and converting it to an expressway between Sharon Amity Road and Wallace Lane.
