DURHAM — N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are set to close one of the two southbound lanes of N.C. 147 (Durham Freeway) from Alston Avenue (Exit 11) to Ellis Road (Exit 8) as part of the East End Connector project.
This closure, between April 2 at 9 a.m. and April 9 at 4 p.m., is required to complete rehabilitation of the bridge over the CSX railroad.
Crews will first close the inside lane, then switch to the outside lane to complete temporary lane striping. This temporary striping pattern will shift traffic to the inside shoulder to allow the contractor to complete work on the bridge behind a concrete barrier.
The work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Drivers should pay attention throughout the work zone and anticipate the closure may cause slight travel delays.
