RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning overnight closures at the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 440 this week as part of the widening of I-40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
Tonight and the next two nights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning, access from I-440 East to I-40 West is scheduled to be closed.
A detour will direct drivers to continue onto I-40 East (Exit 16) to Exit 303 (Jones Sausage Road) to turn around and take I-40 West.
The closures will allow for the demolition of a temporary bridge used during the Fortify project.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour route and pay attention while driving through the work zone.
