WINSTON-SALEM – State transportation contractors plan to close a portion of Salem Parkway for several more overnight periods to continue working on bridges and sound walls on the Business 40 Improvements project site.
Both directions of the freeway are scheduled to close between Main Street and Cloverdale Avenue starting at 8 each night Friday through Monday and reopen at 6 the following mornings. The work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Westbound traffic will be detoured to exit at Main Street and follow First Street to Cloverdale Avenue back to Salem Parkway. Eastbound traffic will exit at Cloverdale Avenue and follow First Street, Peters Creek Parkway, Academy Street, Old Salem Road and Main Street. A map of the detours can be found here.
Drivers should be mindful of crews working along this stretch of the freeway and plan ahead for the detour routes.
