Warmer weather allows progress for Fortify: Possible traffic shifts on I-440 East; concrete barriers for the new traffic pattern on I-440 West should go in place; temporary construction bridge decks get poured and more of the old roadway is being removed. Bridge prep work on the I-40 portion continues at the eastbound bridge over Garner Road. In the coming weeks, we'll be working on the Hadley Drive and State Street bridges – first eastbound, then westbound – which will require some overnight lane and/or shoulder closures.
As always, please reduce your speed and watch for construction workers. Let’s keep Fortify safe.
I-40 and I-440 are two of the Triangle’s busiest roads. The 30-year old pavement over the 11.5-mile long "smile" of the beltline is weakening and we need to replace the material to make your commute safer and easier. Watch this video to learn why Fortify will improve mobility around the Triangle – and our state.
