DURHAM – Work on the East End Connector project will require a week and a half of overnight closures for N.C. 98 (Holloway Street) at the U.S. 70 interchange in Durham.
The contractor will be putting in girders for the U.S. 70 bridge over N.C. 98, so for the safety of drivers and construction workers, the closure will be in place from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night, starting tonight, through June 17.
There will not be a closure this Saturday and Sunday night.
Traffic will be detoured around the closure using Muldee Street, Cheek Road, Geer Street and U.S. 70 Business.
Drivers should anticipate need more time to travel in the area because of the detour.
The East End Connector is estimated to be completed by the end of the year. It will help provide an interstate link between the Durham Freeway and Interstate 85.
