Greensboro - N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will begin a project to add paved shoulders and resurface a five-mile section of N.C. 150 from N.C. 68 in Oak Ridge to U.S. 220 in Summerfield.
Weather permitting; work will take place daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Friday, June 17 until Thursday, June 30.
During the lane closures, crews will perform flagging operations with a pilot car to provide safe passage through the work zone.
Crews will be in the roadway and NCDOT reminds the traveling public to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the Move Over Law, which requires motorists to move over one lane, if possible, or reduce speed for stopped construction vehicles along the highway. Violating the law could result in a $500 fine.

New transportation projects in the state's current 10-year plan are funded through the Strategic Mobility Formula, a new way of more efficiently investing transportation dollars by using a data-driven scoring process along with local input to fund more projects and create more jobs. The new mobility formula was passed into law in 2013 under Governor McCrory's leadership.
