Roads Open for July 4th Travelers PDF Print

Great news for your High Country July 4th holiday trip.  The US 321 bridge work is complete, all the lanes are open on the new section of US 421 in Boone, and in Blowing Rock, lane closures will not take place in the U.S. 321 widening project work zone through the week of July 2-6 due to the Independence Day holiday. Clearing crews will be in the work zone during this period, but no closures will be required. The regular work schedule will resume on Monday, July 9. The road widening preparation work continues at a steady pace. Occasional lane closures will occur on weekdays between the Shoppes on the Parkway and Green Park Inn as blasting work is ongoing. This work has not closed the entire road, nor have there been any detours, as motorists have been able to travel through the work zone with only brief delays. The N.C. Department of Transportation reminds everyone to avoid the work zone area when blasting is taking place. Precautions are put in place to prevent any rocks from leaving the blasting holes. When lane closures are in effect, remember to watch for flaggers standing near the roadway and be prepared to stop.
