Construction crews are putting the final touches on new travel lanes of Interstate 440 West that have been repaved during the Fortify project – the behemoth rebuild of Interstate 40 and Interstate 440 on the southeast side of Raleigh.

The westbound lanes of I-440 will be in their final, three-lane traffic pattern within a few days, state Department of Transportation officials said. Crews will begin opening up the third lane to traffic on Saturday evening, weather, permitting, and new lane striping will begin going down next week. Crews could be completely done with I-440 West within a week to 10 days.

Once that is finished, crews will complete similar work on I-440 East. Weather permitting, that section of the highway should be open by the end of February.
