— The northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 1 in Wake County will be closed overnight Friday between New Hill Holleman Road and N.C. Highway 55.

Contractors are preparing to build a bridge for the Western Wake Freeway, the toll road which will connect Holly Springs with Interstate 40 at the Durham Freeway. The entire 12.6-mile project is on track to be completed next year.

The road will be closed between midnight and 6 a.m. Drivers can follow the posted detour.
