PENDER COUNTY — For crews to make road improvements, an exit ramp of I-40 in Pender County will be closed Friday.
Weather permitting, the westbound I-40 ramps at N.C. 53 interchange — exit 398 — are to be shut down to traffic between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Aug. 25 for milling and paving.
During this time, drivers will be rerouted as follows:
- I-40 West traffic can take Exit 408 or Exit 390 and head back on I-40 East to access N.C. 53
- N.C. 53 traffic should take U.S. 117 North to Exit 390 for I-40 West
The North Carolina Department of Transportation will be conducting the work and encourages drivers to use caution near the construction zone.
