 Construction: Road Closed with Detour
 For the reconstruction of Business 40 (US-421) through downtown Winston Salem, both directions of Business 40 will be closed between US-52 and Peters Creek Parkway (NC-150) beginning at 6:00 a.m. Saturday, November 17, 2018.  The majority of this 1.2 mile section will remain closed for approximately 17 months (i.e. until Spring 2020). 
As an exception to the 17-month closure, the portion of Business 40 between US-52 and Main Street, is scheduled to be reopened by Summer 2019.  Once this portion of Business 40 is reopened, westbound Business 40 motorists will be able to exit onto Main Street to access downtown Winston Salem.  Likewise, motorists on Main Street will be able to access eastbound Business 40.
