Widening of Avent Ferry Road from N.C. 55 to Ralph Stephens Road is scheduled to begin Monday, Nov. 9.
The project includes widening to four lanes with medians and/or turn lanes added at intersections. Work is expected to take a year.
Digital message boards are going up the week of Nov. 2 on N.C. 55 and Avent Ferry Road to alert motorists. Postcards about the project have been mailed to nearby property owners.
Lane shifts and closures will occur during the project. However, Avent Ferry Road will remain open.
The contractor can work from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. if crews work on Saturday. Any Sunday work would require authorization.
