Orange County I-40 Widening Project to Begin in 2022
The widening of Interstate 40 through Orange County recently took another step toward becoming a reality. North Carolina’s Department of Transportation has awarded the 236-million-dollar contract to Lane Construction. Lane now has the task of widening an 11 and a half mile stretch of I-40 from four lanes to six lanes. The project will provide the extra lane from the Orange/Durham County line to the I-85 interchange. Construction is expected to begin in 2022 and be complete by 2025.
