NCDOT plans open houses to discuss Business I-40 closure
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — The N.C. Department of Transportation is holding open houses in the next two weeks to alert motorists to the planned closure of Business Interstate 40 in Winston-Salem.
A news release from the department said one open house is scheduled for Oct. 9 at BB&T Ballpark, with the next one set for Oct. 16 at the Rhodes Center for the Arts, both in Winston-Salem.
The department said those in attendance at both meetings will receive pocket-sized detour maps of downtown Winston-Salem and will be able to ask questions about the project.
Representatives from the Piedmont Authority Regional Transportation and Winston-Salem Transit Authority will provide information about their programs.
Business 40 is closing between Peters Creek Parkway and U.S. Highway 52 for more than a year beginning in November.
