Traffic pattern shift for the N.C. 211 widening project starts Sunday night

RALEIGH - The N.C. 211 widening project in Moore County will shift to some night work starting Sunday, June 2. The contractor for the $29 million project will be widening and paving eastbound lanes of the highway to set up a temporary traffic shift between Page Road and the traffic circle in Pinehurst. The work is scheduled to take place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Monday through Friday nights, and between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. on weekends, and should take just under two weeks.

Once the temporary lanes are in place, traffic will be shifted onto the new roadway to allow crews to safely construct new westbound lanes for N.C. 211 in that area.

Message boards in place will alert motorists of the work zone, and access to all homes and businesses along that stretch will remain open.

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 throughout the project area.

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 flagmen and workers along the roadway and pay attention to the road conditions around them.

Any questions regarding the project may be referred to Chuck Dumas, Resident Engineer or Jim Dietrich, Senior Assistant Resident Engineer at 910-944-7554.
