A road closure will affect a section of Gunbarrel Road for the next few weeks.

The 2300 block of Gunbarrel Road, north of Shallowford Road to McCutcheon Road, will be closed for a road improvement project beginning Wednesday, July 13. 

The work will be north of Shallowford Road, meaning that shoppers headed to the Gunbarrel Road shopping areas and Hamilton Place Mall should not be affected.

The closure is scheduled to be in place for six weeks until mid-August. 

Detours will be posted. Drivers can use McCutcheon Road, Lifestyle Way and Elam Lane.

All businesses and properties will be accessible.
