Plus, the I-440 Inner Beltline off-ramp to access Poole Road (Exit 15) will be closed.

Motorists needing to access Poole Road from the I-440 Inner Beltline will use the following signed detour:

  • New Bern Avenue (Exit 13) to Sunnybrook Road to Poole Road
  • Both closures will be in place until 6 a.m. Monday, May 2. The closures are part of the work to finish the concrete paving to connect U.S. 64/264 to I-440.

    After Monday, two of four lanes on the I-440 section will remain closed as part of an earlier closure.
