RALEIGH - Motorists
traveling in the work zone for the N.C. 211 widening project in Moore County
should be on the lookout for a traffic shift next week. Starting at 6 p.m. on
Tuesday, Nov. 19 and weather permitting, traffic will be moved onto the
westbound lanes in a two-lane, two-way pattern between Pine Valley Road and
just east of Gun Club Road.
The traffic shift should be finalized by 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20. It
will allow the contractor for the project to begin working on the eastbound
lanes. Drivers need to be alert for lane closures in the area during the
shift. NCDOT also reminds motorists to watch
for signs with construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed
The project is converting 7.6 miles of N.C. 211 to four lanes divided by
a grass median from N.C. 73 in West End to the traffic circle in Pinehurst. Motorists
can expect intermittent lane shifts and closures for the duration of the
project, which is expected to wrap up in May 2014.
Any questions regarding the project may be referred to Chuck Dumas,
Resident Engineer or Jim Dietrich, Senior Assistant Resident Engineer at
