Section of I-140 Will Be Repaved

UPDATE – The resurfacing of Interstate 140 will not begin until all lane closures associated with upcoming preservation project on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge are complete.

The N.C. Department of Transportation announced Dec. 13 that the resurfacing of I-140 could have began early next year. However, state transportation officials have decided the project should only begin after the bridge preservation is complete, ensuring people can travel in the area more efficiently. 

Below is the original release from Dec. 13. ​

LELAND – About 5 miles of Interstate 140 in Brunswick County will be milled and resurfaced after the N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a $9.6 million contract this month.

Fayetteville's Highland Paving Co. will perform the work on the interstate between its interchanges of U.S. 74 and U.S. 17 near Leland.

This project will include doing preservation work to several bridges along this stretch. The work will include replacing expansion joints, sealing cracks and doing surface treatment to the concrete driving decks. This kind of bridge maintenance is normal to ensure a safe bridge with a smooth ride for drivers.

The contractor can begin early next year, and will have until the summer of 2025 to complete all of the work.​
