TRAFFIC ALERT: ANOTHER ROUTE 58 TRAFFIC CHANGE PLANNED AS PART OF HILLSVILLE BYPASS CONSTRUCTION
SALEM– Work on the new Hillsville Bypass in Carroll County will require another traffic change on Route 58 later this month. The tentative date for the change is Wednesday, June 30, but it could be adjusted depending on weather. Message boards will be in place on Route 58 to advise motorists of the upcoming traffic change that will affect the eastern end of the bypass project.
Traffic will be shifted off of the existing two-lane section of Route 58 that starts about 0.1 mile west of Route 820 (Freemont Road) extends to 0.3 mile west of Route 669 (Spring Hollow Road). Once shifted, Route 58 traffic will remain in two-lane configuration on a 0.7-mile section of newly constructed roadway. Two similar traffic switches occurred on Route 58 in May due to bypass construction.
In addition, Route 669’s intersection with Route 58 will be relocated just west of its current location.
Construction of the new 5.2-mile Route 58 Bypass began in fall 2007 with an estimated completion date of Nov. 1, 2011.
