RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning a closure tonight at the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 440 as part of the widening of I-40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
From midnight to 5 a.m., I-40 West will be closed at Exit 301. Drivers will take the exit and proceed to Poole Road (Exit 15) to turn around and continue on I-40 West.
The closure will allow for girder installation on the new flyover bridge from I-440 East to I-40 East.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour route and pay extra attention while driving through the work zone.
