COLFAX – One lane of Interstate 40 west of Greensboro is set to reopen this weekend and another is set to close next week as part of sign work for the Business 40 Improvements Project.
The left lane of westbound I-40 has been closed between Sandy Ridge Road (Exit 208) and the I-40/U.S. 421 split (Exit 206) since April 17. It is set to reopen Saturday, when median-side preparation for new overhead signs for Salem Parkway and the I-40/U.S. 421 split is expected to be complete.
On Monday, crews are scheduled to begin drilling and pouring foundations on the outside shoulder for the same overhead sign structure. This will require closing the outside lane of I-40 West in the same location Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day.
The work is weather dependent and subject to change. The closure will be removed if crews finish prior to Friday.
Drivers should slow down and be mindful of crews working along this stretch of the interstate near the Guilford-Forsyth county line.
