RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning closures on westbound Interstate 40 as part of the widening project from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
For the next two nights between midnight and 5 a.m., westbound I-40 traffic will be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time as crews place the girders on the new East Garner Road bridge over the highway. Impending weather could push tomorrow night's work to Friday night.
As an alternate route, drivers should take Exit 306A (U.S. 70 West) to Jones Sausage Road to get back to I-40 West.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the alternate route and pay extra attention while driving through the work zone.
