I-40 Lane Closures Start Monday Evening

The Department of Transportation will temporarily close the outside lane on I-40 East between Exit 306 (US 70) and Exit 312 (NC 42) in Johnston and Wake counties next week. The lane will be closed from 7 o’clock Monday night until 3pm Wednesday afternoon. All lanes will be open each day from 3 until 7 o’clock each afternoon to help with rush hour traffic. Drivers on I-40 will experience heavy delays during the lane closures and should 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. Photo by Carter Rabil
