Winston-Salem - N.C. Department of Transportation contractors have closed Piedmont Drive between the State Employees Credit Union and 8th Street for the Highway 8 Interchange project in Lexington.
"Transportation improvement projects like this one are currently underway across the state as part of Governor McCrory's 25-Year Transportation Vision to enhance travel safety and to better connect North Carolinians to jobs, education, healthcare and recreation opportunities," said Division Nine Engineer Pat Ivey.
Piedmont Drive should be open by Sunday, Oct. 9.
Motorists can navigate around the work using the Greensboro Street Extension and 9th Street Extension to access to Piedmont Drive on both ends of the road closure.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
