A ramp widening associated with the Mebane Oaks Interchange project in the county will require a lane closure along I-85/40 over the weekend beginning Friday night.

The project affects the on-ramp going toward Greensboro at the Mebane Oaks Road interchange. Construction on the ramp will require the outside lane (closest to the shoulder) of the interstate corridor to close from 8:00 p.m. Friday, October 14, until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, October 17. The on-ramp will remain open during this time.

In addition, drivers should be alert for traffic shifts on the interstates that weekend during the ramp construction.

The interchange and access to Mebane Oaks Road will remain open during this weekend. Law enforcement will be on hand to help alert the public of the traffic changes around the interchange. Motorists should use caution and be alert when driving through the area.
