RALEIGH -Motorists traveling Snowfield Road near Winnabow will not be able to directly access U.S. 17 beginning Thursday, Jan. 17. The existing intersection will be permanently closed to traffic. Motorists traveling Snowfield Road will now use a newly constructed service road that will connect with U.S. 17 at Zion Church Road.
Motorists traveling U.S. 17 South needing to access Snowfield Road will need to travel to the next median crossover and make a u-turn. This is necessary because of median construction currently taking place along U. S. 17. Changeable message signs will direct motorists.
This work is necessary as part of the construction of the Wilmington Bypass.
