MORRISVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews have reached a significant milestone on the project to improve the Interstate 40 interchange at Aviation Parkway.
On Saturday, traffic is scheduled to shift onto the eastern half of the new Aviation Parkway bridge over I-40. The western half opened in April.
Work is scheduled to begin at 6 a.m. and wrap up by evening.
At different times and for up to 30 minutes, the exits at the interchange will be closed to allow crews to restripe the ramp connections to Aviation Parkway to allow for traffic to be shifted.
During the closures, message boards will direct drivers to use the Airport Boulevard exits.
This shift will allow crews to complete construction of the median north and south of the bridge in the final phase of construction for this project. The project is estimated to finish in Spring 2021.
