Some eastbound lanes on portions of I-440 near the I-40/440 split will now be shut down at night.
It's part of 3-year rebuild project that will replace an 11-and-a-half mile stretch of freeway in southern Wake County. Daytime lane closures won't begin until mid December.
The DOT's Cris Mulder says 100,000 vehicles use this part of the highway every day and safety is the biggest concern.
"This is 30-year old concrete and pavement," Mulder says.
