Stretch of US 52 northbound in Winston-Salem reopens after being shut down
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A stretch of US 52 northbound from US 421 to Martin Luther King Blvd. has reopened after being closed due to the recent winter storm and ice accumulation.
The roadway reopened at about 10:30 p.m. Monday as North Carolina Department of Transportation crews worked to improve the road conditions. Drivers are still asked to use caution.
Several wrecks were reported across the Piedmont on Monday due to weather-related problems. More than 20 vehicles were left overnight in one Winston-Salem neighborhood.
There will be a line of heavy rain that crosses the Piedmont overnight, melting most of the snow and sleet, and it will be accompanied by gusty winds between 18 and 22 mph.
Overnight, a surge of warm air is going to move through from south to north, carrying temperatures from the lower-30s into the lower-40s by daybreak.
