Drove through the area yesterday coming back from Thanksgiving, it looks like 74 is open from US 52 to US 421. I didn't get on it this time, I was in the wrong lane and it was kind of hard to tell with the ongoing construction.

I take that comment to mean there's not much new signage up as yet along US 52. Based on viewing the traffic cameras on US 421 they have also not yet updated signage at the Beltway exit indicating that NC 74 can be used as a bypass around Winston-Salem to US 52 North.

Except for portable VMS signs, there was none heading south on US 52.

There are two portable VMS signs on US 52 South. One of them is hard to see because it is sort of hidden behind the construction trucks right before the NC 65 exit. The second one is right before the temporary NC-74 East and US 52 South split, but it is switching between "NC-74 EAST, LEFT EXIT" and "US 52 SOUTH, RIGHT LANES" repeatedly. I often see cars switch lanes at the very last minute (almost missing the exit just like you did).

Judging by the satellite view, it looks like the current east/southbound exit to 74 will eventually be the westbound lanes of 74. I don't imagine permanent signage will be installed until the south/eastbound lanes are shifted to their final alignment.

Tar Heel Dashcam has a new video traveling the new (but still far from complete) extension of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway (Future I-74) from NC 66 to US 52 (after the 12 minute mark of the 25 minute video) showing the lack of permanent signage referred to above:
