Traffic Change at I-40 East Exit to Airport Boulevard

​MORRISVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are scheduled to change the way eastbound traffic accesses RDU from Interstate 40 via Airport Boulevard.​

Beginning at 9 p.m. tonight, the loop from I-40 East to eastbound Airport Boulevard (Exit 284B) heading toward the airport will close permanently.​​

Upon closure of the loop, motorists will use the ramp currently marked for westbound Airport Boulevard (Exit 284A) to head toward the airport. A new lane has been added to this exit ramp and will allow for a left turn toward RDU. As part of this change, the interchange will drop the A/B designation and become Exit 284.​​

This work is part of the improvements at the interchange which include converting it to a diverging diamond design, replacing the current bridge over I-40 with two new ones, adding auxiliary lanes on I-40 in both directions and converting Airport Boulevard to a four-lane divided roadway within the project limits.​

Construction started earlier this year and is scheduled for completion in 2023.​
