Fortify project resumes Friday night in Raleigh

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The holiday is over, and Fortify is back in force.

The roadway work on the massive project on I-440 in southwest Raleigh resumes Friday night at 11 p.m.

On I-440 West, Crews will start replacing the orange traffic control barrels between the I-40/440 split and the Poole Road exit with concrete Jersey barriers. The same work will continue overnight Saturday, the Department of Transpiration said.

They will also be installing a barrier along the outside shoulder at the I-40 East ramp to protect power poles in the area, DOT said.

Depending on the weather on Sunday and Monday nights, crews plan to extend the lane closures the final mile on the westbound side from the Poole Road exit to the U.S. 64/264 ext. Once that is completed, the contractor will resume the placement of the concrete barriers the entire length of the work zone.

 On I-440 East, prep work for the upcoming traffic shift will resume with shoulder paving near the I-40/440 split to get it ready for daily travel. The project has to wait until the temperature is above the mid-40s so the asphalt will properly set.

When the weather conditions improve, crews expect to need two nights to complete that work. That will be followed by traffic shifts and eventually the installing of concrete barriers.
