*Update* Portion of Hampton Road Closing Later This Month (Due to rain delay) While Crews Construct New Intersection in Forsyth County

CLEMMONS – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will close a section of Hampton Road between Idols Road and U.S. 158, while they construct a new intersection in Clemmons.

The work is part of the Idols Road extension project that started in the summer of 2016.

“Once complete this wider intersection and extension will increase capacity, provide exclusive turn lanes, and ultimately improve safety for drivers in this area,” said NCDOT Division Engineer Pat Ivey.

Crews will close the road at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 19, Monday, Feb. 26, due to rain delay. It is scheduled to reopen by 6 a.m. on Monday, April 16, weather permitting.

A signed detour will be in place allowing drivers to navigate around the closure using Hampton Road, Idols Road, Middlebrook Drive and U.S. 158. Motorists will still be able to access locations on either side of the closure up to the point of closure.

The department encourages motorists to pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
