Part of I-40/77 interchange improvement project between mile markers
N.C. Department of Transportation will conduct a rolling roadblock on
Interstate 40 in both directions between mile markers 151-154 for 90 minutes early
Thursday morning, Feb. 21, weather permitting, as part of the Interstate 40/77
interchange improvement project.
roadblock is necessary for crews with Zachry Construction to pull a power line
across both sides of the interstate east of Statesville. The work is scheduled
to begin at 4 a.m. and be completed by 5:30 a.m.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction
