Update: Inclement weather has pushed this work back to the night of Tuesday, Aug. 11, weather permitting.
HIGH POINT – New ramps that create safer access to Interstate 74 in Guilford County are set to open this weekend.
By 9 p.m. Saturday, contract crews plan to open new loop ramps from northbound N.C. 68/Eastchester Drive to westbound I-74 and from southbound N.C. 68/Eastchester Drive to I-74 East.
The loops eliminate situations where drivers make left turns across oncoming travel lanes to access the interstate.
The existing ramps onto I-74 will remain in use, but accessible only by right turns.
Drivers should keep in mind this interchange remains an active work zone and be mindful of the crews working in this area.
