2 of 3 Lanes to Close for a Mile on I-540 Work

Posted May 2, 2007

Road Construction

— State transportation officials announced that they will close two of three lanes on westbound Interstate 540 for a mile for 21 hours, beginning at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The closure, needed for construction work as part of the effort to extend I-540, will require narrowing the road from mile marker 22 to mile marker 21, the NC Department of Transportation said Tuesday. That  zone is near the Buffaloe Road interchange on the section of the road that recently opened.

Crews will block off the lanes beginning at 11 a.m. Wednesday and going through 8 a.m. Thursday, NCDOT said.

    I'm still trying to figure out what this particular section needs to have done that has anything to do with the extenson of 540 unless it has something to do with the ramp at Buffaloe itself, since it's 21 miles from there to 40 where the current "extension" is being worked on and 4 or 5 to 64 bypass which is currently completed till they decide when that next phase will start.
