Two Entrance and Exit Ramps to Close for Improvements
The NCDOT has reported that the eastbound entrance and exit ramps for N.C. 41 will be closed from 7am May 30th through 7pm May 31st.
To access N.C. 41 from U.S. 70 East, traffic will continue past the exit for about seven miles and exit at Tuscarora Rhems Road. At the stop sign, turn left and cross U.S. 70, returning to U.S. 70 west until the N.C. 41 exit.
For traffic wanting to get to U.S. 70 East, drivers will use the entrance ramp to U.S. 70 West, drive 8.5 miles and turn left at the crossover at Dover Road and continue to U.S. 70 East.
This work is part of a larger project to bring U.S. 70 up to interstate standards. Crews are widening shoulders, as well as milling and repaving the highway, which will be renamed I-42. The project in its entirety is 32 miles long and costs $25.5 million.
