Road Construction

— A portion of westbound Interstate 40 in Duplin County will be closed overnight for bridge repairs overnight Wednesday, the N.C. Department of Transportation announced.

From 11 p.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. Thursday, I-40 west at exit 355 (N.C. Highway 403) will be closed so crews can perform repairs where a truck hit the bridge span in June.

Motorists traveling on I-40 will be detoured onto the exit ramp, then back onto I-40 on the other side of N.C. 403.

The N.C. State Highway Patrol will direct N.C. 403 traffic.

    OK, this same story was headlines yesterday saying i-40 in Wayne county would be closed. I called them out on it and told them what county it was and they still come out today with it wrong. Great work.
