Motorists traveling in the High Country through the U.S. 321 widening project in Blowing Rock will be getting a holiday gift of sorts as crews will be taking a break over Christmas. That means no lane closures from Thursday, Dec. 24 through Sunday, Dec. 27. Work will resume at 8 a.m. Monday, Dec. 28, weather permitting.
Although no work will be taking place, it is still considered a work zone in the area so drivers need to remain alert and obey the speed limit of 35 mph.
For more information about the project, please call its information line at (828) 964-3260 on Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The line will be closed during the holiday break.
You can also follow the project's progress with regular updates on Twitter using the hashtag #US321.
