— The state Department of Transportation on Monday will begin a $7 million rehabilitation project of an 18.4-mile stretch of Interstate 95.

Lanes along I-95 from the Robeson County line to Interstate 295/U.S. Highway 13 in Cumberland County will be closed on weeknights, and detours will be posted.

All lanes will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and also on weekends, the DOT said.

Barnhill Contracting Co., of Fayetteville, will work to mill and resurface the interstate to improve road conditions.

Crews are expected to complete the project by November.

    Tolls along I-95? What an interesting idea. That would help to pay for the roads that out-of-state-ers use and don't pay for.

    I think they need to just add another lane or two along the interstate and add some BIG TOLL PLAZAs on the Interstate to pay for all this. If you use this, U should pay, if you wish to co country sight-seeing then you dont have worry about it..

    ADD THEM TOLLS AND MAKE THEM YANKEE-CANDIANS THAT ALWAYS TAILGATE AT HIGH SPEEDS ON 95 pay....hehe

    They shouldn't "rehabilitate" I-95. They should add 1 lane through the entire state. Holiday travel on I-95 is a living nightmare. And the State probably could, if our local government doesn't keep taking highway money away from highway projects.

    Sounds like a lot of money till you consider the four hundred million wasted on the mental health "reform" fiasco.
