Work continues on the new intersection on Blowing Rock Road in Boone. According to social media reports, construction in the southbound lanes near the Post Office appears to be complete, and the lane that had been closed since late July is now open. Work begins now in the northbound lane at Cracker Barrel.
When complete the intersection will serve as as access to Postal Street, along with access to the new Publix Grocery (in the former Kmart location), the US Postal Service, Cracker Barrel and other existing business. The expected completion date is still the end of September. For more detailed information about the total project visit this link.
