Road Work and Lane Closure Suspensions in North Carolina Starting Friday to Accommodate Evacuees

To aid with Hurricane Irma evacuations, starting Friday night at 7 p.m., NCDOT will suspend road work and lane closures on major highways that would impact traffic flow.

An exception to the lane closure plan is on I-85 between Henderson and the Virginia line in Vance and Warren Counties. It will remain in a two-way pattern with a single lane in each direction over 20 miles, as there are no additional lanes to open due to the nature of the construction project at that location.

For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on Twitter.
