WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Expect delays and detours near downtown from Tuesday, July 10th until Wednesday, July 11th for the next phase of the Business 40 project.

Starting at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Business 40 East from Cloverdale Avenue to Peters Creek Parkway will be down to one lane. At 10:00 p.m. all lanes will close and won't reopen until 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.

To get around the lane closure, stay on Cloverdale Avenue until West First Street. Take First Street to Peters Creek Parkway to rejoin Business 40 East.

The Business 40 project began in Fall 2017 and will be done in Summer 2020. Upon completion there will be new pavement on Business 40, improved ramps, new shoulders, a reconstruction of the Peters Creek Parkway Interchange and a new interchange at Cherry and Marshall Streets.

There will be a two year permanent closure of Business 40 during the project. It will cost $99.2 million.
