RALEIGH — Recently, the North Carolina Department of Transportation installed corrected highway signs on I-77 in Jonesville. The signs at exit 82, which leads to N.C. 67 through Jonesville, had incorrectly stated that drivers would first arrive in Elkin after taking the exit. The inaccurate signage had confused travelers and lowered Jonesville’s profile in the area.

Due to the efforts of state Sen. Joyce Krawiec (R-Forsyth) and Jonesville Mayor Gene Pardue, NCDOT corrected this by installing new signs with Jonesville accurately listed as the top destination for that exit.

“I’m pleased that NCDOT has installed these new signs for Jonesville,” said Krawiec. “The new signs accurately reflect the area’s geography and will help drivers find their destination safely and easily.”
