The N.C. Department of Transportation says the project involves replacing two pavement joints on the ramp. According to NCDOT , initial work will require one of the ramp lanes to be closed from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Tuesday through Thursday night.

The ramp will then be completely closed from 10 p.m. on Friday, June 30 through 7 a.m. Wednesday, July 5.

During the full closure, the contractor will be working 24 hours a day to finish the repairs.

NCDOT is suggesting multiple detour routes for I-40 East motorists trying to get to I-540 East during the full shutdown.
