RALEIGH - Motorists
traveling through the N.C. 211 construction zone in Moore County will see a
change in the traffic pattern next week. Weather permitting, the contractor
plans to shift traffic from its current pattern into a two-lane, two-way
pattern on the newly completed westbound lanes of the highway on Tuesday, Oct. 8, between the Pine
Valley subdivision and N.C. 73 in West End.The shift will take place
between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. If postponed by weather, it will be done as soon as
possible once conditions improve.
The traffic shift will allow the contractor to construct the
proposed eastbound lanes between Hoffman Road and NC 73.
Motorists are urged to use extra caution in
work zones to protect themselves, their passengers, other motorists and the
construction crews. Drivers need to follow traffic and construction warning
signs in work zones, watch out for flaggers and workers along the roadway and
pay attention to the road conditions around them.
The N.C. 211 project is converting 7.6 miles of the highway to four lanes
divided by a grass median from N.C. 73 in West End to the traffic circle in
Pinehurst. Work on the project is expected to continue through May 2014, and
motorists can expect various lane shifts and closures to continue throughout
the project area.
Any questions regarding the project may be referred to Chuck Dumas,
Resident Engineer or Jim Dietrich, Senior Assistant Resident Engineer at
