WINSTON-SALEM – Drivers on Interstate 40 Business in eastern Forsyth County will notice varying lane closures this week as work continues on the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.
The closures will allow the contractor to safely complete work on bridges that span over the interstate.
The outside lane of Business 40 West will close from 8 p.m. Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday. The inside eastbound lane will close during the same hours from Wednesday night to Thursday morning, as will the outside eastbound lane from Thursday night to Friday morning.
From 8 p.m. Friday until 11 a.m. Saturday, the outside lanes of both eastbound and westbound Business 40 will be closed.
Drivers can use N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 as alternative routes to avoid Business 40 during the closures this week.
Those who travel through this work zone should slow down, be mindful of the work crews and anticipate the possibility of delays.
