NCDOT expected to begin resurfacing US-29 later this month

Apr 3, 2024

SPENCER—Work will soon begin on NCDOT’s resurfacing of Salisbury Avenue (US 29) in Spencer between the southern Town limit (roughly 17th Street) and going north at least to Jefferson Street but possibly further towards Long Ferry Road. This route was last resurfaced in 2004, and the work is part of a resurfacing contract NCDOT has awarded to JT Russell & Sons Inc. The current schedule has US 29 being milled and resurfaced this month (April 2024), pending favorable weather.

As part of this project, the current four-lane section will be reconfigured to one lane in each direction with a common center turn lane and dedicated bicycle lanes on each side of the road, similar to the section of US 29 in Salisbury completed a couple of years ago. The project will be managed by the NCDOT District Office staff in Salisbury and they can be reached at (704) 630-3200 for any specific questions.

As work gets ready to begin, residents and businesses can expect to see construction signs go up and temporary traffic control in place to allow the contractor to begin work safely. Most of the contractor’s operations will take place overnight between 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. Traffic will be maintained throughout the duration of the project with lane closures and traffic shifts. NCDOT also encourages motorists to stay alert due to daily traffic pattern changes during the construction process.
