I-40 BUSINESS CLOSED IN WINSTON-SALEM
I-40 Business between Exits 5-A and 6-A closed on Saturday, November 17, 2018 and is expected to remain closed until early 2020.
The I-40 Business closure covers a 1.2-mile section between Peters Creek Parkway (NC-150) and US-52. All traffic will be diverted to I-40, Peters Creek Parkway (NC-150) and US-52.
Only the 1.2-mile portion in downtown Winston-Salem will be closed. The sections between downtown Winston-Salem and the I-40 split, near Clemmons and the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market, will remain open.
The following downtown road bridges will also close at the same time: Liberty Street, Main Street and Church Street, as well as the Strollway pedestrian bridge. All of them will be replaced with new bridges.
Even though the construction of I-40 Business and 11 new bridges is slated to last up to two years, efforts are underway to open the road by early 2020.
To avoid delays and detours motorists are encouraged to use I-40 (East and West) to travel through the area.
Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling in the area, obey all speed limit signs, and utilize the following detours:
Motorists traveling east on I-40 Business should use Exit 5-A, Peters Creek Parkway and follow the signed detour along Peters Creek Parkway (NC-150), to access I-40.
Motorists traveling west on I-40 Business should use Exit 6-A, US-52 and follow US-52 to I-40 West.
