Overnight Closures Planned Near I-40/I-440 Junction This Week

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.

Tonight from 10:30 p.m. until 5 a.m. tomorrow, 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.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 10:30 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day, the flyover bridge from I-440 East to I-40 East will be closed. A detour will take drivers onto I-40 West to Rock Quarry Road (Exit 300) to turn around and access I-40 East.

The closures will allow for the demolition of the southernmost Rock Quarry Road bridge over I-40. This bridge will be replaced with a longer and wider bridge in the same location. Rock Quarry Road traffic over I-40 will be maintained throughout via traffic shifts to one side or the other.

​Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour routes and pay attention while driving through the work zone.​​
