TRAFFIC ALERT: TRAFFIC SWITCH SCHEDULED AT ROUTE 58 AND CARVER ROAD INTERSECTION IN HENRY COUNTY
Traffic switch is scheduled for September 2

SALEM – Weather permitting, work to improve the intersection at Route 684 (Carver Road) and Route 58 in Henry County will result in a traffic switch during the evening of Wednesday, September 2 and Thursday morning, September 3. The intersection is located about five miles west of Martinsville in the Carver community.

Both east and westbound traffic have currently been running in the eastbound lane separated by a curb.  During the nighttime hours of Wednesday, September 2, the traffic will separate. Drivers will begin to drive through the new pattern on Thursday, September 3.

The eastbound traffic will remain in its current location and the westbound traffic will be moved back over to the new westbound lane.  Traffic will run in one lane in each direction. Passing lanes will remain closed to complete the work in the median.  This traffic pattern will be in place for the remainder of the project.

The speed limit is still reduced from 55MPH to 45MPH through the work zone area. It is estimated that the project will be completed in fall 2015.
