Winston-Salem - Department of Transportation contractors must close alternating lanes along a portion of the U.S. 52 North and South bridges over Main Street as they perform deck, joint and general preservation work in Forsyth County.
"Maintenance and repairs are an important part of the department's overall bridge program," said Division Nine Bridge Program Manager Matthew Jones.
Daytime lane closures will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday, Sep. 19, until Thursday, Sep. 22, weather permitting.
"Projects like this go a long way in helping to preserve the taxpayer's investment in bridge projects in North Carolina," said Division 9 Board Member Jake Alexander.
This type of bridge reservation project is a key part of Governor McCrory's 25-Year Transportation Vision. Its goal is to enhance travel safety and to better connect North Carolinians to jobs, education, healthcare and recreation opportunities.
NCDOT is also taking this time to remind the traveling public of the Move Over Law. It requires motorists to move over one lane, if possible, or reduce speed for stopped construction and emergency and utility vehicles with flashing lights on the shoulder of the highway.
