N.C. Department of Transportation contractors will close a portion of Interstate Business 40 for project demolition work starting Friday in Winston-Salem.

Starting at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 9, Business 40 will close in both directions between Cloverdale Avenue and Peters Creek Parkway for the demolition of the Fourth Street bridge. It will reopen to traffic by 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, weather permitting.

“The Fourth Street bridge itself will close at 7 a.m. on Friday, March 9, and remain closed until completion of reconstruction in January 2019,” said NCDOT Division Engineer Pat Ivey.

Travelers can detour using Cloverdale, First Street and Peters Creek Parkway in each direction.

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