Ramps to and from an Interstate 40 interchange in Davie County are scheduled to close next week as part of an ongoing roadway improvement project.
Beginning the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 6, the westbound ramps at the I-40 interchange at U.S. 64/Exit 168 will be closed for about 30 days. These closures are necessary to safely perform pavement rehabilitation in the section between the travel lanes of I-40 and the ramps.
Drivers traveling westbound on I-40 should follow the detour signing in place to Exit 162 and return to Exit 168 on I-40 East. There will also be a signed detour directing U.S. 64 traffic to I-40 West.
Drivers should slow down when approaching this stretch of I-40 and be mindful of crews working in the area, as vehicles will be entering and exiting the work zone.
This work is part of the $55.6 million project to rehabilitate 6.5 miles of I-40, which includes the replacement of two interstate bridges over Hunting Creek and upgrading the U.S. 64 bridge over I-40 at Exit 168.
