 CONSTRUCTION OF SEGMENT A HAS BEGUN!

 

The reconstruction of Peters Creek Parkway road and interchange began on October 23 and will continue through Fall 2018. This phase of construction is referred to as Segment A. During the initial months, there will be temporary lane closures on both Peters Creek Parkway and Business 40 during this time frame, as noted below. Remember that the full closure of Business 40 will only occur AFTER completion of Segment A in Fall 2018.

Current Construction Work and Updates:

NEW INFORMATION!
The inner lanes of Business 40 underneath Peters Creek Parkway ARE NOW OPEN during the day! The contractors were able to finish early by doubling their shifts to accelerate the work.
However, nighttime closures of the inside lanes (from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.) will resume, as well as the “up and over” nighttime traffic pattern along eastbound Business 40 at Peters Creek Parkway, as needed (click here to see an image).
These nighttime lane closures will be allowed through the holiday season from Friday, Dec. 22, through Tuesday, Jan. 2.


ON PETERS CREEK PARKWAY:

Work crews began site preparations on October 23. While two lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained on Peters Creek Parkway during most of construction (click here to see a graphic of how traffic will flow), there will be some initial temporary, nighttime (9PM - 6AM) and non-peak, daytime (9AM – 4PM) lane closures on Peters Creek Parkway. Detour signs will be placed on local streets, similar to what you already see if a road is closed.

ON BUSINESS 40 UNDER PETERS CREEK PARKWAY BRIDGE*:

While the distance of the lane closures will be short, there may be traffic delays as two lanes merge into one in each direction. Please consider taking another route if possible, to avoid delays.

Message boards will be placed on Business 40 to advise drivers of lane closures. Ample notice of lane closures and detours via news and social media will also be provided so that travelers can prepare.

*PLEASE NOTE:All lane closures are what is expected, but will not be used if the work does not warrant it. For real time closure information, motorist should check NCDOT’s Traveler Information Management (TIMS) maps at https://tims.ncdot.gov/tims.
