NCDOT to suspend most road construction work over Thanksgiving

Packing up the family and heading to grandma's house out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday? Or, perhaps, gathering with friends for a road trip for Thanksgiving? If so, you'll be glad to hear the N.C. Department of Transportation is suspending most road construction work over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Construction will be suspended from 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25 until 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 1 on most construction projects along interstates, N.C. and U.S. routes with the following exceptions:

** I-295 Fayetteville Outer Loop will close the outbound (southbound) lanes of All-American Freeway between Fort Bragg and Santa Fe Drive.

** In Raleigh, the two lanes of the I-40 West ramp onto I-440 West is reduced to one lane, and I-440 is in a two-lane pattern in both directions between I-40 and U.S. 64/264 as a part of the Fortify project.

** U.S. 264 in Dare County between Stumpy Point and Engelhard is reduced to one lane in three locations for the replacement of three bridges;
