With all travel lanes open in AREA I, limited construction operations continue today on #US321 in Blowing Rock from Tanger Outlets to Blowing Rock Furniture Galleries; however, these operations will not impact traffic.  Other construction activities that may impact travel are also scheduled today and include retaining wall construction between Green Park Inn and Canyons Restaurant, retaining wall construction between Green Park Inn and Blackberry Condos, and storm drainage structure installation south of Rocky Knob Rd.  Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time when planning their trips to and through this area of the project and to SLOW DOWN and REMAIN ALERT!***

Be advised that lane closures and traffic shifts are ACTIVE WORK ZONES, NOT SUITABLE FOR RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES!!!  Everyday, pedestrians and bicyclists are observed traveling through these areas apparently under the misguided perception that since they are out of ‘open’ travel lanes, it is safe.  By being inside of these active work zones you are endangering yourself, other motorists and our construction crews, and at times, even delaying the progress of our work.  Please, observe these work zones!!  If you must be in the project area either on foot or on a bicycle, please help us keep you and everyone else safe – do not walk or bike through theses active work areas!! ***

For more details regarding these construction operations or for general project information or if you need assistance in traveling to/through the area, please call 828-964-3260. The project information line is available Monday – Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 pm.***
