Business 40 Construction Project Updates!

**UPDATE: Lane Closures and Delays**
Beginning Monday, November 27, NCDOT will close the inner lanes of Business 40 (one eastbound and one westbound) for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at the Peters Creek Parkway Bridge. Travel delays are expected in both directions on Business 40—eastbound and westbound. Work is expected to continue until January 11, 2018, or until bridge work is complete. The inner lanes will be closed for a limited distance around the bridge work area.

On Business 40

  • Overnight Lane Closings: NCDOT will continue to close the inner lanes of Business 40 - eastbound and westbound - overnight from 9:00 pm to 6:00 am, Monday through Sunday. During this time, two lanes of traffic will merge into one on the outer lanes in each direction.
  • Overnight Eastbound Detour. Only if needed (this will be at the discretion of the contractor*), you may notice an occasional change in the traffic pattern during the hours of 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. if heading eastbound on Business 40. As you approach the Peters Creek Parkway Bridge, traffic will merge into a single lane and will be detoured up the exit ramp at Peters Creek Parkway, across and over Peters Creek Parkway and directed back on to Business 40 down the existing ramp. This “up and over” detour will last until mid-December, except during holiday work restrictions.
  • Overnight Westbound Lane Closings. Overnight lane closures on westbound Business 40 will be set up only when the type of work necessitates closing the westbound inside lane. If the work does not require the westbound lane closure, NCDOT does not intend to install it.
