RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning overnight closures at the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 440 this week as part of the widening of I-40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
Tonight and the next two nights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning, access from I-40 East to I-440 West is scheduled to be closed.
A detour will direct drivers to continue on I-40 East to Exit 303 (Jones Sausage Road) to turn around and take I-40 West to access I-440 West.
The closures will allow for girders to be set on the new flyover bridge from I-440 East to I-40 East.
Drivers should allow extra time to navigate the detour route and pay attention while driving through the work zone.
