November Federation Dance – last traffic update

From Clinton:

I drove the construction area tonight and found nothing that concerns me for travel tomorrow on I-40 or I-77 North to or from Elkin.  There may be a lane closed for paving on I-77 South of I-40 to Troutman exit 45 (US 21/NC 115).  This is North of the suggested route to or from Mooresville and should be of no concern unless one chose to take I-40 to I-77 South instead of Old Mountain Road back to Troutman.  In the event that this is your plan, I would not anticipate any significant traffic backup on a Saturday night.

I should be available to help tomorrow if needed at 704-929-8456.

November Federation Dance News Blast!

We had over 20 squares register for the November Federation dance last year and we’re making plans for another great dance Saturday.  I see nothing that concerns me at this point relative to the road construction in Statesville.  I will continue to watch the situation carefully this week and try to post an update Friday night.  The hotel manager has agreed to hold the negotiate rate of $69 as long as space is available.  Should you experience a problem getting this rate this week, go ahead and make your reservation and let me know what happened.  I expect to be able to rectify it for you.

If you have any questions or concerns this week or run into traffic problems Saturday, call me for assistance.

November Federation Travel Update!

Major road construction continues in Statesville on I-40 just West of I-77 as well as on the I-40 and I-77 interchange.  I continue to be amazed at how little disruption in traffic flow we are seeing due to contractor related delays.  To the best of my knowledge, it has been over a year since there have been any lane closures during the daytime hours and that was weekend work setting new bridge girders over I-40 – not a  serious problem.  Occasionally we’ll see a nighttime lane closure, but that does not normally cause a significant traffic buildup.  The biggest concern is accidents and breakdowns where there is no pull off area available.  Caution:  Be alert for non-attentive drivers and lane shifts as you go through this construction area.

I will be closely monitoring the road conditions the week of the Federation and post anything I can find of significance.  Do not expect another posting concerning traffic conditions until that week.

Feel free to call with any Federation related questions you might have.
