RALEIGH – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors are planning overnight closures at the junction of Interstate 40 and I-440 as part of the widening of I-40 from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next day, access from I-440 East to I-40 West is scheduled to be closed.
A detour will direct drivers onto I-40 East (Exit 16) to Exit 303 (Jones Sausage Road) to turn around and take I-40 West.
The closures will allow crews to continue work 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.
