The project consists of milling and filling the outside lanes then resurfacing the entire width.
There will be one lane of travel open, with a pilot car escorting the vehicles through, alternating directions.
The project will take approximately six weeks to complete with good weather.
This section of road will be congested during these times. The department asks the traveling public to be patient and allow extra time for their commute if traveling through this section.
If possible, travelers may want to consider an alternate route.
If anyone has questions they can contact the DOT district office at 252-583-4230.
