Lane Closures end With Completion of Support Work on New Peters Creek Parkway Bridge

WINSTON-SALEM — Nighttime lane closures ended Jan. 2 on Business 40 as North Carolina Department of Transportation contractors wrapped up phase-one bridge support work on the Peters Creek Parkway bridge as part of the Business 40 Improvement Project.

“While these closures have ended, drivers on Business 40 can expect sporadic daytime lane closures along Peters Creek Parkway between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. over the next few months for roadway work,” said NCDOT Resident Engineer Mezak Tucker.

Project work will also mean future closures at the following locations:

Liberty Street will be narrowed to two lanes between Business 40 and Cemetery Street fr three weeks starting Monday, Jan. 8, while demolition work starts on the CBI building.

The following week, starting Monday, Jan. 15, Liberty Street will be narrowed to one lane for demolition work of the Steam Academy building.

These lane closures will end Friday, Feb. 2, weather permitting.

“Narrowing lanes will allow crews to work safety alongside traffic while maintaining connectivity for drivers in this area,” said NCDOT Division Engineer Pat Ivey.

Near the end of the month, closures in the vicinity of Apple Street and Gregory Street will be needed for rock removal work.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert, slow down in the work zone and obey the posted speed limit.
