Project Awarded to Rehab I-40 between Wade Avenue and I-440/U.S. 1 Interchanges

RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a contract to rehabilitate a four-mile stretch of Interstate 40 in western Wake County.

The interstate will be rehabbed between the Wade Avenue interchange (Exit 289) and the I-440/U.S. 1/U.S. 64 interchange (Exit 293).

The entire roadway will be milled and resurfaced, guardrails will be repaired or replaced, and signage will be replaced.

Additionally, the three bridges at the Wade Avenue interchange, which were built in 1981, will receive bridge preservation treatments including joint replacements, fresh paint, new traffic markings and symbols, and a new concrete surface to improve the ride quality. These repairs will extend the service life of each bridge.

The $16 million contract went to Crowder Construction of Charlotte.

Work is expected to begin this year and wrap up by the end of next year.
