Resurfacing Project on Highway 83 Update

Joe Denoyer - March 2, 2023 5:09 pm

The traffic changes are scheduled to start Thursday, Mar. 9 around 11 a.m. starting one mile south of the U.S. 83/Salley Road intersection and ending a mile north of the intersection. Northbound traffic will be shifted to the west and southbound traffic will utilize the southbound shoulder for head-to-head traffic.

In this stage of the project, the northbound shoulder will be closed to allow the U.S. 83/ Salley Road intersection improvements which involve adding turning lanes to Salley Road and a turning ramp.

Thursday, March 9, the traveling public can expect one lane reduction using pilot car operation as the contractor prepares the work zone. Motorists should be aware of delays of up to 15 minutes and the reduction of the speed limit to 50 mph. This operation to shift traffic may last until the end of the day on Friday, March 10. During off hours, the pilot car operation will not be in effect.

Monday. March 13th Salley Road will be completely shut down on the east side of U.S. 83.

Updates on this project will be released as construction continues to progress.
