Intersection of Gainesway Drive and section of Greentree Road to be closed

Greentree Road will be closed to through traffic from Centre Parkway to New Circle Road, including the intersection of Gainesway Road and Greentree Road, starting Tuesday, March 5, for sewer construction.

Initially, the intersection of Gainesway Road and Greentree Road will have intermittent closures, with flagmen to help direct traffic. Motorists are advised to detour around the area to avoid the closures.

Later in March, the intersection will be fully closed for approximately one week for pipe installation. The intersection will reopen by March 31, but Greentree Road will remain closed to through traffic from Gainesway Road to New Circle Road until the end of April.

Before the Gainesway intersection is closed, Greentree Road will reopen in both directions from Armstrong Mill to Centre Parkway.

Road repairs will not be completed for several weeks, so drivers are cautioned to proceed slowly. Detours are as follows:

  • Commuters traveling on Chinoe Road from downtown can use Pepperhill Road, Montavesta Road, Dove Run Road and Tates Creek Road to reach Armstrong Mill Road.
  • Commuters turning onto Gainesway Road from Tates Creek Creek Road can travel Claiborne Way to Greentree Road to reach Armstrong Mill Road and Centre Parkway.
  • Commuters coming from Pimlico Parkway can use Centre Parkway, Appian Way and Armstrong Mill Road to reach Tates Creek Road.


Access to homes will be maintained throughout construction.

Construction is part of the West Hickman Trunk E sanitary sewer project, which is replacing and upsizing approximately 6,000 feet of sanitary sewer pipe from Armstrong Mill to New Circle Road. This project is part of the federal consent decree requirements for Lexington to improve its sanitary sewer system.
