HIGH POINT – Work on the project to improve the Interstate 74 interchange with Eastchester Drive/N.C. 68 will require rerouting traffic overnight next week.
To remove portions of the N.C. 68 bridge, contract crews will have to close I-74 East at the interchange and the new loop from southbound N.C. 68 onto I-74 East.
The closures are scheduled to begin each night Sunday through Thursday with a single lane closure on I-74 East at 9 p.m. followed by full closures of the interstate and loop from 11 p.m. until 6 the following mornings.
Eastbound I-74 traffic will be directed up and over the N.C. 68 exit while the closure is in place, while traffic from N.C. 68 will be detoured up I-74 West to the Johnson Street exit to access I-74 East.
Drivers should be mindful of crews working near the flow of traffic in this area and factor the detour into their commute.
