Fayetteville Outer Loop Project Will Require Closure of Section of U.S. 401 the Weekend of Jan. 17-20 for Bridge Work

RALEIGH -Work on the Fayetteville Outer Loop project will require the closure of U.S. 401 (Ramsey Street) at the I-295 interchange the weekend of Jan. 17-20. The closure is needed to allow the contractor to safely install girders for the Loop bridge that will carry traffic over U.S. 401.

Weather permitting, the closure will be in place from 8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 17 through 5 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, with the possibility the road could re-open earlier if the work is completed.

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.

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 80 percent complete, and set to be finished this spring.
