RALEIGH — N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are scheduled to shift traffic toward the median on Interstate 440 West from Jones Franklin Road to I-40 Sunday night as part of the Interstate 440 Improvements project. This work was scheduled to occur previously but was rained out.
At 7 p.m., crews will isolate traffic to a single lane beginning with the outside and then alternating to the inside lane to allow crews to place barrier wall and pavement markings. Traffic will be in this pattern for approximately nine months.
Access to I-40 East and West (Exits 1A and 1B) and U.S. 1 South/U.S. 64 West will be maintained throughout the evening and after the traffic has been shifted.
The shift is scheduled to be completed by 6 a.m. Monday, weather permitting.
Drivers should pay attention and allow for extra time to navigate through the work zone.
