The ramp from southbound Johnston Road to the outer loop of Interstate 485 will be closed late Sunday and early Monday, weather permitting.
The N.C. Department of Transportation says the ramp will be closed from 10 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday, so crews can drill holes in the travel lane and get information for the future flyover bridge planned from northbound Johnston Road to the inner loop of I-485.
This is all part of the $83.3 million widening project, which will add one lane in each direction on I-485 between I-77 and Rea Road. The project is scheduled for completion by December 2014.
During the ramp closure, motorists trying to get from southbound Johnston Road to the outer loop of I-485 will make a U-turn at John J. Delaney Drive, and take northbound Johnston Road to the I-485 outer loop ramp on that side of the road.
