TRAFFIC ALERT: TRAFFIC SHIFT AND TURN RESTRICTIONS TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK ON WILLIAMSON ROAD IN ROANOKE
SALEM – A pedestrian improvement project on Route 11 (Williamson Road) is set to begin next week just south of the intersection with Route 117 (Peters Creek Road).
The majority of the construction, phase one and two, will take place during daytime hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. The southbound lane of Williamson Road will be closed and traffic will be shifted into the center turn lane. The northbound lane will remain open.
In addition, left turns will not be permitted into all entrances from both southbound and northbound lanes within the work zone on Williamson Road.
This pattern will remain in place through the first two phases of the project.
During the third phase of the project, work will be performed with lane closures in place during night hours only, 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning.
Shoulder closures will be in place throughout the project with message boards to alert drivers.
Drivers may experience delays in the area and should use caution in the work zone.
The project is expected to be completed at the end of 2021.
