RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Crews will work to shift travel lanes as part of the Fortify project on Interstate 40 in Raleigh on Saturday night.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation says the shift will put westbound traffic on three new inside lanes from the I-40/440 split in southeast Raleigh to Rock Quarry Road on exit 300.
They say work is expected to begin with lane closures about 11 p.m. Saturday. The new traffic pattern is expected to be in place Sunday morning.
According to NCDOT, the goal is to have all traffic over the 8.5-mile length of the project on the new inside lanes in both directions by early fall.
Crews will then concentrate on rebuilding the three outside lanes throughout the project area.
Project details, as well as traffic updates, live traffic cameras and information about alternate transit options can be found on FortifyNC.com.
