U.S. 21 Overnight Closures This Week As Part of I-40/77 Interchange Improvement Project

CHARLOTTE U.S. 21 will have overnight closures in place this week at I-40 exit 151 in Statesville to allow a contractor to dismantle the old I-40 bridges over the highway. The work is part of the I-40/77 Interchange Improvement Project.

Starting at 9 p.m. each night through Thursday, the highway will be shut down, with detours in place. It will re-open by 6 a.m. each morning, with the work expected to wrap up Friday morning, weather permitting.

Southbound U.S. 21 traffic will be detoured onto I-40 West to N.C. 115 (Exit 150), where drivers can turn left at the end of the ramp, then left at the next light to get onto I-40 East, and then exit at U.S. 21 to continue south. Northbound drivers on U.S. 21 will be directed onto I-40 East, and then I-77 North, where they should keep to the right on the loop ramp to get back onto I-40 West. Then they can exit for northbound U.S. 21.

Drivers are encouraged to slow down and use caution while the detour is in place. They also need to pay attention to detour signs and message boards.
