Fayetteville Outer Loop Project Suspended Tonight Due to Weather

Work will resume tomorrow night
RALEIGH -Work on the Fayetteville Outer Loop project has been suspended tonight due to the weather system moving across much of the state.Tomorrow evening, May 16 at 8 p.m., crews will resume the closure of U.S. 401 (Ramsey Street) at the I-295 interchange. The closure is needed to allow the contractor to safely remove traffic protection devices used in constructing the new bridge that will carry traffic over U.S. 401. The closure will be in place until 5 a.m., Saturday, May 17. A signed detour will be in place, sending northbound U.S. 401 traffic onto I-295 East to River Road, where motorists can get on I-295 West to get back to U.S. 410 North. Southbound motorists will turn right on Andrews Road, then left on McArthur Road to return to U.S. 401. This is the same closure that was in place during a weekend closure in February.The work is part of a $55.2 million contract awarded Barnhill Contracting Co. of Tarboro to build a 5.2-mile section of the Fayetteville Loop between N.C. 87/210 and U.S. 401. The project is considered about 95 percent complete, and set to be finished in June.
