I-95 the 5th Most Dangerous Interstate in the Country

The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that traffic fatalities have increased 10.4 percent during the first six months of 2016 compared to the same time period in 2015.  These increases are most likely the result of more drivers on the road and a greater percentage of these motorists are driving distracted. A recent study found that 61 percent of drivers use their cell phones on some drives, most drives or every drive.

On average, Americans spend 293 hours driving approximately 10,900 miles each year. A detailed study by EverQuote examined the most dangerous interstates in America, based on fatalities per mile. This analysis used raw data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Fatality Analysis Report System from 2010 through 2015 and found fatality rates based on highway lengths.
That data was then compared to the data from EverQuote’s safe-driving app, EverDrive, representing over 6 million trips and 80 million miles of driving.

That study ranked Interstate 95 the 5th most deadly highway in America.

Interstate 95 runs 1926 miles from Miami, Florida to Houlton, Maine. The highway is the 5th most dangerous interstate in the United States with 0.89 fatalities per mile. It has been in the top 10 for fatalities each year for the past six years.

I-95 Southbound Congestion Expected Near North-South Carolina Border

The North Carolina Department of Transportation reports that, because of an emergency culvert repair on Interstate 95 in South Carolina, southbound motorists should expect delays south of Lumberton.

The S.C. Department of Transportation closed the interstate’s right southbound lane today at Exit 186, which is south of the state line, to allow workers to safely install a concrete barrier. The lane is expected to be closed for at least one day, South Carolina officials said in a news release.

Other stretches of I-95 southbound in North Carolina have been congested today as those who evacuated ahead of Hurricane Irma return southward. To ease the congestion, the N.C. Department of Transportation has suspended lane closures during the day for the southbound lanes of Interstates 95 and 77 and the eastbound lanes of I-26.

North Carolina DOT Prepared for Solar Show

In North Carolina, the star of the show will perform for about two and a half minutes.

Planning has been ongoing for months in preparation for thousands — likely hundreds of thousands — of people to travel either to or through North Carolina for the total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.

Numerous events and festivals are planned in western North Carolina, with Jackson County alone preparing for 18,000 to 20,000 visitors. The estimated number of travelers headed to South Carolina exceeds 2.1 million. Because of this population surge, the N.C. Department of Transportation has been coordinating with various state. local and federal agencies to help eclipse enthusiasts safely enjoy the event.

Transportation officials urge residents and visitors to stay safe by following these tips during their eclipse weekend:

  • Plan Ahead — Expect higher volumes of traffic on every road. Eclipse watchers are encouraged to arrive early. Remember to obey all posted signs and message boards.
  • Stay Put — Do not park on the shoulder of the road to view the eclipse. Exit the roadway and park in a safe location, such as a rest area or other designated parking spots. Motorists should avoid distractions while driving and watch for pedestrians near eclipse viewing events. Do not wear eclipse viewing glasses while driving.
  • Leave Late — Traffic will be likely be heavy following the eclipse, much like after a concert or sporting event. Stick around and let others leave first.

For those headed into the path of totality, follow the instructions of posted signs instead of your phone or GPS. NCDOT traffic experts, highway patrol officers and EMS officials will have accurate, real-time information and will be in the best position to direct traffic on the big day.

Those in other parts of North Carolina will experience a partial solar eclipse and are encouraged to follow the safety tips outlined above.

NCDOT will suspend road work and lane closures on primary routes in the 17 westernmost counties between Friday evening and Tuesday afternoon. Other interstates across the state will be monitored, and lane closures will be removed if heavy traffic backups occur.

State transportation officials have assembled 42 portable message boards that will be placed at strategic locations across seven counties with eclipse-related messages. Three new closed-circuit TV cameras have been installed and will be monitored so the timing of the lights can be changed to keep traffic flowing.

Major I-95 Construction Project in North Carolina to Begin This Month

Work will soon be underway to replace two aging bridges and repave a seven-mile section of I-95 in Johnston County. The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded a $53.1 million construction contract to to smooth I-95 between south of Lizzie Mill Road and the Wilson County line and replace the bridges.

This section of road sees nearly 36,000 vehicles per day and number is expected to increase to almost 42,000 over the next two decades. In addition to paving, the contract includes grading and drainage work.

The bridges over I-95 at Lizzie Mill Road and Bizzell Grove Church Road will be replaced with longer and wider bridges to accommodate any future widening of I-95.

Most of the repaving will take place at night, but some daytime lane closures are expected. There will be periodic night-time closures of I-95 for the bridge construction and detours will be in place. NCDOT will notify the public ahead of these closures.

Work can begin August 28 and is expected to be complete by September 2020. Additional vegetation work may continue until March 2021.

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 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.

Improvements on the Way for I-95 in North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced that highway improvements are on the way for a section of I-95 in Robeson County.

A project getting underway on Monday, April 10, calls for new pavement lane striping and snowplowable markers to be placed in both the north and southbound lanes between the South Carolina line and N.C. 72 in Lumberton. Similar improvements will be made on the ramps at exits 1B, 2, 7 and 10.

Work can take place day or night on Mondays through Fridays but will be halted at noon on Fridays so it doesn’t interfere with weekend traffic. In work areas, for the safety of crews, one of two lanes will be closed. The project is expected to wrap up by late Friday, April 28.

Drivers need to slow down when approaching work zones and anticipate possible delays in the area.
