Raleigh - Multiple lane closures on a section of Owen Drive, in Fayetteville can be expected over the next several weekends, starting tonight. The closures are needed so crews can safely make bridge deck improvements. The lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. tonight, and continue through 6 a.m. Monday, June 6. Lanes will be closed from Cumberland Road to Village Drive.
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.
Two lanes in the westbound direction will be open and one lane in the eastbound direction will be open. Similar delays can be expected for the following six weeks, weather permitting.
The contractor, Highland Paving Company of Fayetteville, is rehabilitating the bridge deck by taking the asphalt off the surface and putting down a new concrete wearing surface treatment back.
