Ramp temporarily closing from U.S. 221 South to U.S. 421 South
DEEP GAP – A contractor for the N.C. Department of Transportation will be constructing new drainage on a ramp from U.S. 221 to U.S. 421 in Watauga County.
The construction requires a closure of the U.S. 221 South to U.S. 421 South ramp for approximately four weeks starting Monday, Aug. 17.
Drivers heading that direction will be directed on a marked detour to U.S. 421 North for several hundred yards to a U-turn to head south to Wilkes County.
Weather conditions will determine the time necessary to complete the work. All other ramps at this interchange will remain open.
