Lane reopens after construction causes heavy delays on I-40 west near Garner

Wake County News

GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – Construction caused major traffic delays on Interstate-40 west Friday morning near Garner. 

The interstate’s left lane near exit 306 was closed until about 2:45 p.m. “due to unforeseen issues dismantling the old bridge” at the exit, the North Carolina Department of Transportation said.

Traffic was backed up past exit 312 throughout the morning.

Drivers encountered major traffic delays through the work zone and many were told to take an alternate route. 

CBS 17’s Laura Smith suggested using NC-50 northbound into Raleigh or take the Clayton Bypass to U.S. 70 Business to get to I-40.
