View Construction Delays: Triangle Expressway in a larger map
More traffic delays are scheduled in coming days and nights on I-40 and Davis Drive as road crews close lanes to accommodate construction of the state's first modern toll road, the Triangle Parkway through RTP, NCDOT says.
* Nightly lane closings are planned on I-40 between Airport Boulevard and N.C. 55 from Sunday, Aug. 21, through Friday, Sept. 2, between 9pm and 6am. Some traffic stoppages are planned between midnight and 5 a.m. for as much as an hour at a time.
* Daytime lane closings, between 9am and 4pm, are planned on Davis Drive between Development Drive and Hopson Road next week, from Monday Aug. 22 through Friday Aug. 26.
These plans come on top of DOT's announcements that the NC 147 spur from I-40 south to Alexander Drive will be closed permanently (see today's story with reader comments) starting Sept. 6, and that northbound lanes on NC 147 north from I-40 to Alexander Drive will be closed at night through Sept. 1.
