WINSTON-SALEM – An N.C. Department of Transportation contractor plans to temporarily close a section of U.S. 421 tomorrow to continue improvements for the Future Interstate 74/Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project.
From May 24-25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the right lane of U.S. 421 North (Salem Parkway) will be closed north of Exit 224 (South Main Street), pending favorable weather. This lane closure is necessary to allow contract crews to continue to safely remove trees in the vicinity.
Traffic should resume its normal flow near Exit 227. Vehicles with wide loads over 12 feet should use I-40 West as an alternate route.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and use extra caution when driving through the work zone.
