N.C. Department of Transportation contractors have scheduled a series of closures tonight on Interstate 440 at Lake Boone Trail as part of the I-440 Improvements project. These closures are similar to the closures that took place Monday night on the eastbound side from Wade Avenue to Lake Boone Trail.
At 9 p.m., I-440 West will close at Lake Boone Trail so crews can place a barrier wall and pavement markings to allow traffic to shift towards the median between Lake Boone Trail (Exit 5) and Wade Avenue (Exit 4). This pattern is scheduled to be in place for approximately two years.
A detour will direct drivers to take Exit 5 and follow Lake Boone Trail to Blue Ridge Road to Wade Avenue to access I-440 West.
The ramp from Lake Boone Trail to I-440 West will also be closed at the same time.
Work is scheduled to be completed by 5 a.m. tomorrow, weather permitting. A rain date is planned for the following night.
Drivers should pay attention and allow for extra time to navigate through the work zone.
