As construction continues on the Interstate 40/77 interchange improvement
project in Statesville, the NC Department of Transportation will temporarily close the I-40 Eastbound on-ramp from U.S. 21 to I-40 Eastbound beginning Monday, Oct. 27, at 9 a.m. The closure will remain in place until Thursday, Oct. 30, at 6 a.m.
During the on-ramp closure, crews will be working on asphalt, adding
a guardrail and concrete barrier wall, as well as placing new traffic
A signed detour route will be in place directing eastbound I-40 traffic to take
I-40 Westbound to N.C. 115 (Exit 150), and then back to I-40 Eastbound.
When the ramp reopens on Thursday morning, all I-40 Eastbound traffic heading
to I-77 Southbound must exit at the US-21/new I-77 South Exit (Exit
151). The existing I-77 Southbound ramp will be closed off by a
concrete barrier wall. Message boards will be placed on I-40 Eastbound at the
same locations as the U.S. 21 Exit signs.
If motorists miss the new southbound exit, they can take the exit for
I-77 Northbound, continue around the loop ramp to I-40 Westbound and
continue around the Loop to the I-77 Southbound ramp.
There will be a Special Planning Board on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 7 p.m. in the 2nd floor conference room of the Building Standards Center, located at 349 N. Center Street in Statesville, NC. This will be an educational session regarding the Municipal Growth Overlay (MGO).
