WINSTON-SALEM - Weather permitting, N.C. Department of Transportation will install a temporary railroad crossing on Webb Road south of Salisbury starting Monday morning.
Workers will temporarily close a portion of Webb Road near the US-29 and South Main Street intersection starting at 9 a.m. The road is expected to remain closed until the work is complete, reopening no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May. 5.
