WINSTON-SALEM Now through May 19, drivers on Interstate 40 Business east of Winston-Salem will encounter lane reductions as preparations for tying in a section of the future Winston-Salem Northern Beltway continue.

The closures will be between mile markers 10 and 14 to enable N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews to complete guardrail, shoulder and seeding work.

Eastbound Business 40 is already in a one-lane traffic pattern and will remain that way until 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. The westbound side will be reduced to a single lane from 5 a.m. on Monday, May 13, until 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 19.

Drivers can use N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 as alternative routes​ to avoid Business 40 during the closures. Those who take Business 40 should watch for signage ahead of the lane drops and be cautious throughout the work zone. They should also anticipate possible delays.

NCDOT: WINSTON-SALEM A major section of the future beltway around Winston-Salem will soon begin taking shape.

Flatiron Constructors Inc. and Blythe Development Co. are combining forces to design and construct a 7-mile span of multi-lane, interstate-grade highway between U.S. 311 (New Walkertown Road) and just west of N.C. 66 (University Parkway).

The work will require constructing 10 bridges and nine culverts and implementing innovative design and construction methods. In total, crews will rework more than 4.5 million cubic yards of earth enough to fill about 1,360 Olympic-size swimming pools, or fill the Empire State Building more than three times.

The project is estimated to cost about $140 million and take until the summer or fall of 2022 to complete.

Early construction is expected to progress from east to west, beginning with clearing work this week in the area of Old Walkertown Road and Northampton Drive.

The contract team has developed a transportation management plan focused on limiting traffic disruptions as much as possible or shifting traffic away from construction to provide a safer work zone for the traveling public, construction crews and N.C. Department of Transportation personnel.

This marks the third section of active construction on the beltway project.

The 4-mile section between Interstate 40 Business/U.S. 421 and U.S. 158 is expected to open to traffic later this year. The 2-mile span between U.S. 158 and U.S. 311 is on schedule for completion in 2021.​

During their annual spring meeting last week, AASHTO has approved NCDOT’s request to designate the western half of the beltway as Future I-274.

IIRC, the segment between Business 40/US-421 and US-158 is supposed to open by the end of the year. It’ll be temporarily signed as NC-74 until the entire eastern half of the beltway is built, then it’ll change to I-74.

WINSTON-SALEM Drivers are urged to be prepared as a new exit loop off U.S. 421 in Forsyth County opens under a temporary configuration.

N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will open the new loop from U.S. 421 South onto Peace Haven Road at 10 p​.m. on Friday, June 14.

People who take the new exit loop need to pay extra attention because there will be a shortened exit lane with the temporary alignment, meaning drivers will have less time to make the decision to get in position to take the exit.

With the new loop opening, the contractor can begin construction along Peace Haven Road that will allow traffic to move onto the new bridge.

This work is part of a larger project to improve the interchange in preparation for construction of the future Winston-Salem Northern Beltway interchange with U.S. 421, just west of Peace Haven Road.

WINSTON-SALEM N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will be closing lanes on Interstate 40 Business to install overhead signs and conduct bridge and road work.

The inside lanes of the Business 40 will be closed in both directions between Hastings Hill Road and South Main Street​ as preparation continues for tying in a section of the future Winston-Salem Northern Beltway.

Construction will only be overnight, beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, July 26, and lasting until 11 a.m. Saturday. Work will resume at 8 p.m. Saturday and end at 11 a.m. Sunday.

Crews will repeat the same construction schedule the following weekend, Aug. 2-4.

N.C. 66, Interstate 40 and U.S. 52 can be used as alternative routes to avoid eastbound Business 40 during the closure.

Drivers should slow down and be cautious throughout the work zone and be advised that the reduction to one lane in each direction of Business 40 may cause delays.
