You can count on road crews to park their bulldozers on Thanksgiving and other major holidays -- but watch out when you're driving around the Triangle this Halloween.
NCDOT engineers say that, weather permitting, they'll be at work Saturday on a number of repaving and road improvement projects that could cause traffic backups.
Lane closings are likely on the I-40 widening project in West Raleigh (at the Wade Avenue bridge), and for paving jobs on:
- I-540 north of I-40,
- I-40 between I-540 and Wade,
- I-440 and
- US 64 / 264.
DOT engineers sometimes provide road work schedule updates on their travel information website and 511 phone service. Unfortunately, DOT does not publish daily details on exactly when and where you can expect to find construction delays.
