RALEIGH - Motorists traveling at night on eastbound U.S. 64 Business in
eastern Wake County can expect some lane closures between Hinton Oaks Boulevard
and 3 Sisters Road, starting March 18. That is when work begins on a $1.5
million N.C. Department of Transportation
Contractor Lane Construction Corp. of Cheshire, Conn. will be milling
and resurfacing 5.3 miles of highway between the Neuse River and 3 Sisters Road
near the interchange with the Knightdale Bypass (U.S. 64/264), with the
exception of the roadway at the I-540 interchange.
The work will be done at night to lessen the impact on traffic, with
one or two lanes closed at a time between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Monday through
Sunday. The project is scheduled to take about 10 weeks.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information,
stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. Updated travel information is also
