Business 40 improvement project to bring exit number changes

According to a release from NCDOT, plans to change exit numbers will start next week, if weather permits.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced Thursday that work to change the exit numbers to new exit numbers that correspond with U.S. 421 is set to begin next week.

According to a release from NCDOT, plans to change exit numbers will start if weather permits.

The work to change exit numbers was originally scheduled to begin in December but was postponed until after the holidays due to rain.

Work to change exit numbers will occur in two phases with the first phase on the eastern side of the Business 40 Improvements project and the second on the western side.

For the first phase, crews will close one lane in either direction of the highway from 9 p.m. each night Monday through Saturday until 6 a.m. the following mornings.

Crews will start at U.S. 52 and work toward Sandy Ridge Road, and then shift the closure to the westbound side.

Once the first phase is complete, crews will begin changing out the signs on the western side under lane closures between Cloverdale Avenue and Interstate 40.

Drivers will not see double exit number signs.

However, since all the work will not take place in a single night, they are likely to notice a new U.S. 421 exit sign directly followed by a Business 40 sign.

Business 40 will soon become a designation of the past in Winston-Salem. New signs will soon reflect the new name of the highway – Salem Parkway/U.S. 421.

Below is the list of old and new exit numbers. They can also be found on Business40nc.com and their Facebook page.
