TROY – Drivers traveling west on N.C. 24/27 from Biscoe to Troy will have full access to the Troy Bypass starting this week.
The new westbound lanes of the bypass between existing N.C. 24/27 and Page Street are scheduled to open to traffic about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Both directions of traffic had been utilizing the eastbound lanes along this stretch since Aug. 7, when the N.C. Department of Transportation opened the 6.6-mile highway.
The closure of the westbound side was needed to complete the connection to the existing highway and Glen Road, which has also been closed since Aug. 7 and will reopen as part of this traffic shift.
Drivers should be cautious as crews will be in and out of the roadway while the shift is completed.
Work will continue under daily lane closures in both directions for the next several weeks as the contractor places the final asphalt layer.
