I-40 Lane Closures Expected To Cause Major Delays

The N.C. Department of Transportation will temporarily close the outside lane on I-40 East between Exit 306 (US 70) and Exit 312 (NC 42) in Wake and Johnston counties from 4am until 10pm on Saturday, weather permitting. The temporary lane closure will also occur each night from 7pm until 10am, beginning Monday, April 2 through Wednesday, April 4, weather permitting. Motorists traveling on I-40 should expect heavy delays during the lane closures and are encouraged to use an alternate route if possible. The posted speed limit for this work zone is 60 mph and will be reduced to 55 mph during lane closures. The closures are necessary to perform paving operations as part of the U.S. 70 Clayton Bypass, currently under construction. The $123 million project was awarded to S.T. Wooten Corp. and is expected to be complete in June 2009. File photo by Carter Rabil
