KERNERSVILLE – State transportation contractors plan to close lanes of U.S. 421 overnight this weekend to begin installing an overhead sign in eastern Forsyth County.
The inside lanes of the highway are scheduled to be closed in both directions between South Main Street in Kernersville (Exit 224) and Linville Road (Exit 228) from 8 p.m. Friday until 11 a.m. Saturday, and then again from 8 p.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday.
The closures are needed for the crews to safely construct a median footing for the sign.
Drivers should slow down when approaching this stretch of U.S. 421 and be mindful of the crews at work.
This is part of ongoing work on the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.
