U.S. 64 in Davidson closing for rail repairs

U.S. 64 will be closed at the railroad crossing near Decker Road, southeast of Lexington, starting Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 a.m. The closure will allow the Winston-Salem Southbound Railway to replace the tracks on the railroad line that cross the highway just east of the Decker Road intersection.
Once the rails are replaced and the crossing re-graded, NCDOT crews will then repair the roadway at that location before U.S. 64 can be re-opened. The earliest that is expected to happen is by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, weather permitting.
A signed detour will be in place, sending U.S. 64 westbound traffic right onto Cunningham Road and left onto East Holly Grove Road to get back to U.S. 64. Eastbound traffic will turn right on Conrad Hill Mine Road, left on Old U.S. 64 and left on N.C. 109 to get around the closure.
NCDOT reminds motorists to anticipate travel along U.S. 64 in that area to take longer because of the detours, and also to watch for construction and detour signs.
For real-time travel information any time, call 511, visit www.ncdot.gov/travel or follow NCDOT on Twitter. Another option is NCDOT Mobile, a phone-friendly version of the NCDOT website. Type “m.ncdot.gov” into the browser of your smartphone and bookmark it for future reference.
