In this shot from our live traffic camera at the Knightdale Bypass, you can see the orange barrels closing off the left lane of the ramp to I-440 East. This is part of the Fortify project, and we urge people to merge into the right lane in advance of the split to help alleviate congestion.
As you drive through the Fortify work zone, you see two large, yellow cylinders in the median between I-440 East and West near the Poole Road exit. Watch this video to learn what they are and how they’re helping move the project forward. UPDATE: The asphalt plant is closer to being operational as it now has power and gas lines hooked up. Test runs for adjustments later this week.
Our contractor’s crew is shown here removing an existing roadway surface slab for the inside two lanes as they prepare to resurface the I-440 West bridge over Sunnybrook Road.
Kudos to @NCDOT and @triangletransit for new buses and #boss to @FortifyNC commuter time savings from Johnston Co.
