Resurfacing to Close Pender County Interstate Ramps


W​ALLACE – An entrance and exit ramp of Interstate 40 in Pender County are scheduled to be closed on Tuesday.

Weather permitting, the westbound I-40 ramps at U.S. 117 interchange (Exit 390) are set to be closed to traffic between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. These closures are part of the interstate milling and paving project in Pender County.

During this time, drivers will be detoured as follows:

  • I-40 West traffic can take Exit 398 and turn left on N.C. 53 or Exit 384 and head back on I-40 East to access U.S. 117.

  • U.S. 117 traffic is directed to take I-40 East to Exit 398 to access I-40 West.

The N.C. Department of Transportation encourages drivers to slow down and use caution near the work zone, and plan ahead for the detour.
