MORRISVILLE – A pair of months-long ramp closures are upcoming as part of the project to improve the Airport Boulevard interchange on Interstate 40 in Wake County.
Weather permitting, the following closures are expected to begin next week and be in place until just before the Christmas holiday:
Starting at 8 p.m. on Sept. 6, crews plan to close the ramp from Airport Boulevard to I-40 West. Detours will follow either Aviation Parkway back to I-40 West, or for those coming from Pleasant Grove Church Road, McCrimmon Parkway to Aviation Parkway to I-40 West.
Starting at 8 p.m. on Sept. 7, crews plan to close the ramp from I-40 East to Airport Boulevard. The detour for this closure will have drivers continue to the next exit and follow Aviation Parkway to McCrimmon Parkway to access Airport Boulevard.
The closures are needed for crews to reconstruct the ramps to tie into the new diverging diamond interchange that is under construction.
Drivers should anticipate these closures over the next several months and be mindful of crews at work near the Airport Boulevard interchange.
