The long-term two-lane traffic pattern on I-440 is almost complete, with concrete barriers going up on the east side of the highway in the next few days. Crews will then step up preparation for building the new roadway.
Bridge widening on I-40 also gears up, and you'll see new safety barriers going up along the shoulders near the Garner Road, Hadley Drive and State Street bridges.
Please keep Fortify safe and obey the speed limits through the work zones.
I-40 and I-440 are two of the Triangle’s busiest roads. The 30-year old pavement over the 11.5-mile long "smile" of the beltline is weakening and we need to replace the material to make your commute safer and easier. Watch this video to learn why Fortify will improve mobility around the Triangle – and our state.
