NCDOT to Replace Signs on I-85/40
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Signs of change are about to take place on a stretch of Interstate 85/40.
Contractors with the N.C. Department of Transportation will be closing alternating shoulders along a 25-mile stretch of I-85/40 from Guilford-Alamance county line to the split in Orange County over the next month to remove aging ground-mounted signs and replace them with new signs.
If weather permits, the work will occur daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting Tuesday, July 26. It's expected to be completed by Wednesday, Aug. 31.
While the road will not be closed, crews will be working alongside traffic.
