RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Some lanes will be closed on Interstate 40 in Raleigh on Sunday as transportation workers make a temporary lane shift permanent.

A lane had been temporarily shifted on I-40 West at the Clayton Bypass since September to determine if it improved traffic flow.

Transportation officials say the change did improve traffic flow and travel time so they will make the change permanent.

The work Sunday morning will close the left lane on I-40 West. Work is also planned on the ramp from the Bypass onto I-40.
