WINSTON-SALEM – The N.C. Department of Transportation will close northbound lanes and exits along U.S. 52 in Forsyth County this Saturday for work associated with the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway project, weather permitting.
Starting at 7 a.m., both lanes of U.S. 52 North will be closed near Exit 118 (N.C. 65/Bethania-Rural Hall Road). This exit and the onramp to access U.S. 52 North from N.C. 65/Bethania-Rural Hall Road be intermittently closed on Saturday as well. All work is expected to be complete by the evening.
The closures are necessary to facilitate a traffic shift on the highway linked with the new beltway.
Traffic on U.S. 52 North will be detoured to Westinghouse Road, Tobaccoville Road and back to N.C. 65.
Motorists are encouraged to plan accordingly for delays and use extra caution on the detours.
