Spotswood Road in Stokesdale is closed as part of the project to widen U.S. 220. When complete, Spotswood Road will serve as an auxiliary road for homes and businesses that will no longer have direct access to U.S. 220.

A road that was commonly used for a shortcut to and from U.S. 220 in Stokesdale will soon undergo modifications.

Spotswood Road, which connects U.S. 158 and U.S. 220 just before the roads intersect in Stokesdale, is closed. The road is in the process of being modified to serve as an auxiliary road for businesses and residences on the southbound side of U.S. 220. Those businesses and residences north of the Haw River will no longer be able to directly access U.S. 220 once construction is complete, and auxiliary roads will be needed to provide a throughway.

NCDOT senior assistant resident engineer Kris Lorenz says the hope is for that portion of the project to be completed later this spring.

In Summerfield, crews have been working to install a temporary signal at the intersection of U.S. 220 and Oak Ridge Road/Scalesville Road. Lorenz said the signals that had been there for years needed to be moved in order to allow for widening.
