I-77 Ramp in Yadkin County Closing for Construction

​JONESVILLE – A contractor for the N.C. Department of Transportation will begin a temporary closure of the Interstate 77 northbound onramp from U.S. 21 Business in Yadkin County this week as part of a major rehabilitation project. 

Starting at 9 a.m., Tuesday, the ramp will close until March 14 so crews from Archer Western can remove old concrete and the supporting base, then rebuild a loop designed to last another 30 years.

Local traffic along U.S. 21 Business will be detoured back into Jonesville by U.S. 21 Business to Valley Road to N.C. 67 back to I-77. 

This construction is part of a $49.5 million project to completely rehabilitate five miles of the interstate and the associated ramps. The project began last spring and is scheduled to conclude by Sept. 1, 2021. Crews have completed more than 70 percent of the project.

Transportation officials remind drivers to slow down and avoid distractions when driving in work zones. ​
