No lane closures on US 321 this weekend due to ASU graduation
RALEIGH – Lane closures will not take place in the U.S. 321 widening project work zone through Blowing Rock this weekend due to the Appalachian State University graduation ceremonies in Boone. All lanes will remain open from noon Friday until Monday, May 13 at 8 a.m.
Weekend travelers are advised to drive with caution as the work area now has temporary road markings that may be unfamiliar. The temporary traffic pattern near the Food Lion in Blowing Rock has eliminated the southbound left turn lane on U.S. 321.
The wet weather has slowed down pavement marking operations along the work zone. When the weather cooperates, the pavement marking operations will not cause any lane closures or traffic pattern shifts.
Crews have continued to construct the retaining wall near the Food Lion on Little Springs Road, as well as haul fill to the area across from Rocky Knob Road for the proposed northbound lanes.
