MORRISVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will continue final paving work tonight on the project to improve the Interstate 40 interchange at Aviation Parkway.
At 7 p.m., crews will begin paving the left lane of northbound Aviation Parkway just south of Gateway Centre Boulevard and the entrance to Lake Crabtree Park and will continue north to the bridge over I-40 where the operation will turn around and then pave the right northbound lane.
The ramp from northbound Aviation Parkway to I-40 East will be closed as crews pave the lane across the top of the ramp.
During the closure, message boards will direct drivers to Airport Boulevard to access I-40 East.
The ramp and all travel lanes should reopen by 6 a.m. tomorrow.
Pending weather, additional ramp and lane closures will occur nightly this week and next as crews pave all lanes of Aviation Parkway from National Guard Drive to just south of Gateway Centre Boulevard and the entrance to Lake Crabtree Park, the ramps at the Aviation Parkway/I-40 interchange and lanes of I-40 between the Aviation Parkway and Airport Boulevard interchanges.
