I-95 work to require temporary ramp closures in Cumberland County
A staff report
Drivers will encounter a series of ramp closures in June associated with the widening of Interstate 95 near the Cumberland-Robeson county line, the N.C. Department of Transportation said in a news release.
The following ramps will be affected:
I-95 North exit ramp onto U.S. 301/I-95 Business, heading north, will be closed June 4-11 . The detour will be to drive past the closed ramp and take Exit 41 onto Chicken Foot Road.
I-95 Business South ramp to I-95 South will be closed June 11-18. The detour will send drivers farther south on U.S. 301 to Exit 33 near St. Pauls to access I-95.
The closures are needed for contract crews to safely make drainage improvements and grading for the ongoing I-95 widening near the county line, the release said.
The closures could be postponed during bad weather. Drivers should be cautious near the work zone, the release said.
