Eight miles of U.S. 311 Bypass to be complete in late May

April 1, 2013

A road project that will create a quicker and easier route from Winston-Salem to Asheboro is slated for completion by Memorial Day weekend.

John Partin, senior assistant resident engineer with N.C. Department of Transportation, said crews are working to finish construction of an eight-mile section of the U.S. 311 Bypass that will run from Cedar Square Road outside of Archdale to U.S. 220 near Randleman.

The eight-mile stretch was originally planned for completion this month but the cold and rainy March delayed those plans, he said.

“We are working hard on it right now," Partin said. “The weather is not cooperating as much as we’d like but we are still hoping to open by Memorial Day weekend. That’s what our goal is.”

The U.S. 311 Bypass, which eventually be part of Interstate 74, will then stretch from Interstate 40 in Winston-Salem to U.S. 220 in Randolph County when the eight-mile section is complete.
