Raleigh - Contractors with the N.C. Department of Transportation will begin paving and resurfacing a section of I-95 South near Fayetteville between mile markers 40 and 53 at 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25. The resurfacing will continue nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays until Thursday, Dec. 15.
As a result of this work, one southbound lane of I-95 along this stretch will be closed each night, starting with the area south of Exit 44 near Claude Lee Road and working north.
Crews are also repairing 12 bridges in this section of I-95 as part of a long-term project that will continue through 2017.
This project is part of the Department of Transportation's program to rehabilitate and replace substandard bridges across the state. The state budget signed by Governor McCrory last year provided more than $450 million over two years to improve the state's bridges.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch for construction signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
