If you can, avoid Booker Dairy Road in Smithfield this weekend. The Department of Transportation will be reducing Booker Dairy Road in Smithfield to one lane of travel on Saturday, Feb. 23rd and Sunday, Feb. 24th.
This weekend, drivers who are accessing Booker Dairy Road will need to enter off Buffalo Road and exit onto Highway 301 North (N. Brightleaf Boulevard). Drivers will not be able to access Booker Dairy off Highway 301 North.
These closures are a part of the ongoing effort to widen Booker Dairy Road from two to four lanes with a divided median. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
