KERNERSVILLE – State transportation contractors plan to close a lane of U.S. 421 in Forsyth County for two full weeks.
The outside lane of U.S. 421 South is set to close between Linville Road (Exit 228) and South Main Street in Kernersville (Exit 224) from 8 a.m. Thursday until the morning of May 21.
The closure is needed for crews to safely install a barrier wall and construct an outside shoulder as part of the ongoing Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project. The work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Drivers should slow down when approaching this stretch of U.S. 421 South, be mindful of the crews at work and expect slight delays due to the lane reduction. They may also use N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 as alternative routes to avoid U.S. 421 during the closures.
