Business 40 Construction Project Updates

Update:December 11, 2019

Starting at 9 pm on Tuesday, December 17, and continuing through 6 am on Friday, December 20, NCDOT crews will close lanes nightly on Business 40 between U.S. 52 and Sandy Ridge Road to change exit numbers. Business 40 will be renamed Salem Parkway, with exit numbers continuing U.S. 421 exits.

  • New signs will affect eastbound Business 40 traffic first, beginning at U.S. 52 and traveling toward Sandy Ridge Road.
  • Crews will then switch to the westbound direction to change signs, returning back to U.S. 52.  

Scheduled work will depend on weather conditions. Lanes will not close on Christmas or New Year holidays due to increased traffic.

In January, NCDOT crews will change exit numbers between Cloverdale Avenue and I-40. Be aware of new exit numbers affecting Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center:

  • Eastbound U.S. 421/Business 40 to Cloverdale Avenue Exit #4 will change to Exit #234C.
  • Westbound U.S. 421/Business 40 to Cloverdale Avenue Exit #4A will change to Exit # 234C.
