KERNERSVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors need to close a lane of Business 40 overnight on the west side of Kernersville to safely remove and replace guardrail.
The outside lane of westbound Business 40 will be closed at the South Main Street interchange, exit 14, from 8 tonight until 6 a.m. Wednesday.
The work is part of ongoing preparation to tie the eastern side of the future Winston-Salem Northern Beltway with Business 40 near Hastings Hill Road.
People wishing to avoid Business 40 West during the closure can use N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 as alternative routes.
Drivers who take Business 40 West should slow down near Kernersville and anticipate the possibility of delays as traffic passes through the work zone.
