CLEVELAND – Work on the ongoing Interstate 40 widening project will require a month of nightly closures on a section of NC 42.
Starting Wednesday, September 7, NC 42 between Cleveland Road and Old Drug Store Road will be closed from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. to allow crews to start widening NC 42. These closures are expected to repeat Monday through Friday until early October.
During this time, a detour will guide traffic up Cleveland Road onto NC 50 and then back on to NC 42.
Motorists should remain alert, drive cautiously and slow down as they travel near the work zone.
