FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. – All lanes of US 421/I-40 Business are closed between Highway 66 and the I-40 split so crews can demolish the Macy Grove Road overpass.

The demolition is part of the Macy Grove Road Improvements Project that will widen and extend Macy Grove Road from Industrial Drive to Mountain Street in Kernersville.

A new 6 lane overpass and interchange between Macy Grove Road and US 421/I-40 Business is also part of the project.

Motorists are advised to follow the marked detours while work is completed.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation said that all lanes of US 421/I-40 Business should be re-opened by Monday if weather permits.
