Extended I-95 Ramp Closure in North Carolina to Begin July 24

The North Carolina Department of Transportation reports that a 60-day closure of the Interstate 95 southbound off ramp at Bagley Road (exit 105) between Kenly and Micro in Johnston County is set to start at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 24. The closure is needed to construct a roadway for the traffic shift on I-95 from existing bridges to new bridges over the Little River near the ramp.

While the ramp is closed, drivers needing to access Bagley Road will be detoured to exit 102 (Micro Road), where a temporary traffic signal is in place to handle the expected increase in exit traffic. Drivers should turn left at the signal and go over the interstate, then left again on to I-95 northbound to get back to exit 105.

The work is part of a $12.9 million project to replace two 62-year-old bridges on I-95, the north and southbound structures over the Little River just north of exit 105. Each new bridge will have two travel lanes, but will be wide enough to accommodate four lanes of traffic each in the future. The new northbound bridge will also have an additional outside lane that will serve as part of the lengthened onramp for traffic merging on to I-95 from Bagley Road, giving drivers more time to merge.

Both bridges will remain open during the construction of their replacements, with some lane closures in place when necessary. The outside half of each new bridge will be built first while traffic continues using the existing bridges. Once this is complete, traffic will be shifted to the new outside half of each bridge. The original structures will then be demolished and the inside half of both new bridges will be completed.

The onramp to northbound I-95 from Bagley Road continues to be closed. It will remain shut down until the completion of the of the project, which is expected to be in October 2018.

Drivers are encouraged to slow down when approaching the work zone, and to pay extra attention to construction and detour signs.

Extended I-95 Ramp Closure in Maine Begins Monday

Beginning on Monday, July 24, 2017 at 6:00 AM, the Maine Turnpike southbound off-ramp of Exit 86 Interchange in Sabattus will be closed for approximately 21 days. The closure is required to complete upgrades to the tolling equipment on the ramp. Upgrades to the other three ramps at Exit 86 are also in progress, however, no other ramps will need to be closed. “We tried to minimize the effect on the traveling public as much as we possibly could,” said Maine Turnpike Authority spokeswoman, Erin Courtney. “We were able to create temporary travel lanes for the other three on- and off-ramps, but southbound-off was too close to a stream, making a closure of the ramp necessary,” said Courtney.

Message boards are in place and will continue to inform approaching travelers of the closure. The Maine Turnpike Authority appreciates motorists’ patience and understanding during this construction.

The Exit 86 ramp work is included as part of a much larger $6.5 million project consisting of pavement rehabilitation and clearzone improvements from Mile 80.7 in Lewiston to Mile 88.6 in Sabattus. The overall project is scheduled to be completed this fall.

Extended Major Detour for I-95 Construction in North Carolina

An I-95 construction project to repair a flood damaged bridge in Robeson County, North Carolina gets underway on Monday, July 17, with traffic restrictions expected to begin the following night.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation will repair flood damage to a bridge over Little Marsh Swamp on southbound I-95 near mile marker 35. Previous flooding caused erosion beneath the bridge. Inspectors have determined the bridge to be safe, but to prevent any further erosion, NCDOT is adding rock as part of the repairs under the bridge. The bridge is about 3.5 miles south of the Robeson-Cumberland county border.

Beginning Tuesday night, July 18, the contractor plans to close both southbound lanes and detour traffic off the interstate at Exit 41 and onto N.C. 59 in Cumberland County. Signs and message boards will direct traffic to use U.S. 301, which parallels the interstate, before getting back onto I-95 at Exit 33 in Robeson County.

For a portion of the project, the contractor will close only one of the two southbound lanes overnight and a detour won’t be in place.

To minimize traffic disruptions, NCDOT will limit the single-lane closure to between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. When both lanes must be closed, the detour will be restricted to between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays. There will be no detours or single-lane closures on I-95 during the weekends, when traffic is heavier.

Contract crews are expected to complete the work by Aug. 31. During construction, I-95 northbound traffic will remain unaffected.
