RURAL HALL – Several overnight closures of U.S. 52 are upcoming as part of ongoing work on the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.
U.S. 52 South will be closed at the N.C. 65 interchange from 10 tonight (Jan. 3) until 6 a.m., and so will the ramp from N.C. 65 onto southbound U.S. 52. The impact to traffic will be minimal, as drivers will take Exit 118 for N.C. 65 and travel through the intersection to get back onto U.S. 52.
The same arrangement is scheduled for northbound U.S. 52 at N.C. 65 early next week, with closures starting at 10 p.m. on Jan. 6 and Jan. 7 and lasting until 6 the following mornings.
The closures are needed for crews to safely install diaphragms for the new bridge at the interchange, protecting traffic from overhead hazards.
Drivers should slow down when approaching Exit 118 during these times and be mindful of crews working near the interchange.
