“During this time, please use caution as crews will be working to safely remove the existing tubular markers and install a concrete median”, said NCDOT Engineer, Daniel Waugh. This permanent median provides more durability and less maintenance to promote the right turn only movement onto US 17N. Access will be restored as soon as possible, once the work is finished.

The NCDOT reminds motorists to STAY ALERT, use alternate routes when possible during this period, drive with caution, obey the posted speed limits, and allow extra travel time.
