RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning several overnight closures this week as part of the widening of Interstate 40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
Overnight Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next morning, I-40 East will be closed at Exit 301 (I-440 West). A detour will lead drivers to take the exit and proceed to Poole Road (Exit 15) to turn around and take Exit 16 to get back on I-40 East.
These closures will allow for structural steel to be set on the new flyover bridge from I-440 East to I-40 East.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour and pay attention while driving through the work zone.
