Overnight Closures Planned Tonight for I-40 near Airport Boulevard

MORRISVILLE – Work that is part of the improvements to the Interstate 40 and Airport Boulevard interchange will require a series of closures on I-40 tonight.

Beginning at 8 p.m., the far-right lane of I-40 East will be closed between I-540 and Airport Boulevard as crews safely unload bridge girders near the site of the new structures.

At midnight, the three left lanes of I-40 East will close near Page Road (Exit 282), leaving just the one far-right lane open.

Later in the night, a slow-rolling roadblock on I-40 East near Page Road (Exit 282) will be put in as the large crane being used is moved from the I-40 eastbound shoulder to the median. This roadblock could last up to 30 minutes. Several girders will then be unloaded in the median.

Once unloading is complete, another slow-rolling roadblock will be installed as the crane is moved back to the eastbound shoulder, also stopping traffic for up to 30 minutes.

All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. tomorrow.

Motorists need to slow down and pay extra attention as they travel through the work zone.
