Closures Planned at I-440-Wade Avenue Interchange

RALEIGH — A pair of Wade Avenue ramps are scheduled to close beginning Friday night as part of the Interstate 440 Improvements project.

The loop from eastbound Wade Avenue to I-440 East will close at 9 p.m. Friday to allow crews to complete construction of a temporary loop to be used for the next 13 months while the new flyover bridge for westbound Wade Avenue over I-440 is built. The temporary loop is expected to be open by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

During this closure, drivers will follow a detour to Faircloth and Hillsborough streets to access I-440 East.

The ramp from I-440 East to Wade Avenue (Exit 4) will also close from 5 a.m. Monday until 8 p.m. Tuesday for the same purpose.

Drivers will be detoured to Lake Boone Trail (Exit 5) to turn around and take I-440 West to Wade Avenue west (Exit 4B) to Blue Ridge Road to turn around and access eastbound Wade Avenue.

​Motorists should allow extra time to navigate the detours and slow down and pay attention throughout the work zone.
