Get ready for long traffic delays in both directions on I-40 in West Raleigh and Cary tonight when many miles of lanes are closed for paving work. It's part of a nearly finished project to widen I-40, DOT said.
Between 9 p.m. tonight and 6 a.m. Friday, two right lanes on I-40 East will be closed from Wade Avenue to U.S. 1.
Two left lanes on I-40 West will be closed from N.C. 54 to Harrison Avenue.
And the left lane on U.S. 1 North will be closed from Buck Jones Road to Jones Franklin Road.
The work is part of a $49 million project, to be finished this month, to widen I-40 between Wade and the Jones Franklin Road overpass.
