RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning an overnight closure tonight at the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 440 as part of the widening of Interstate 40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
Beginning at 9 p.m., crews will close the right lane of the flyover bridge from the Beltline to I-40 East. The bridge will close completely by 10:30 p.m.
A detour will take drivers onto I-40 West to Rock Quarry Road (Exit 300A) to turn around and access I-40 East.
The closures are needed to shift traffic to a new temporary alignment on the flyover.
Work is scheduled to be completed by 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour and pay attention while driving through the work zone.
