U.S. 70 Exit to Close for Weekend for Complete 540 Project

GARNER – Access to U.S. 70 at its junction with Interstate 40 is scheduled to be shut down for the weekend as part of ongoing work on the Complete 540 project.

The exits from both directions of I-40 to U.S. 70 East are expected to be closed from 10 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday, weather permitting. The closures will allow crews to safely shift traffic onto new ramps that will accommodate future Toll N.C. 540 joining the I-40/U.S. 70 interchange.

During the closure, eastbound I-40 drivers wanting to access U.S. 70 East are encouraged to take U.S. 70 Business (Exit 306) into Clayton and take N.C. 42 West back to U.S. 70. Westbound I-40 drivers can take either N.C. 42 East (Exit 312) or continue to U.S. 70 Business (Exit 306B) and follow the I-40 East detour from there.

Drivers should be mindful of crews throughout the work zone and factor these detours into their weekend trips.
