Blowing Rock Construction Update PDF Print
Written by NC DOT Release   
Monday, 27 February 2012 15:57

An update on the construction on US 321 through Blowing Rock: Crews continue to clear along  the path as part of the widening project. The majority of work is taking place along “Area I,” which is the U.S. 321 business corridor from the U.S. 321/North Main Street intersection at Shoppes on the Parkway to U.S. 321/South Main Street intersection at Broyhill Home Furnishings at 8486 Valley Boulevard. Some of this work may cause short travel delays. Some of the work currently taking place includes:
·    Clearing and Grubbing –
·    Utility Clearing – by BREMCO
·    Erosion Control
·    Seeding and Mulching
·    Safety Fencing—that orange mesh
Traffic Flow:  When blasting operations begin on the project, NCDOT does not anticipate gridlock scenarios in downtown Blowing Rock during temporary road closures. When blasting occurs in “Area I,” the majority of detour traffic using Main Street will be local vehicles since U.S. 321 will be closed to traffic down the mountain near Blackberry Road. Trucks will be encouraged to use the designated detour route N.C. 18 to Wilkesboro and U.S. 421 to Boone.
