Drivers in north Fayetteville can expect nighttime lane closures while crews work to install structural steel beams over the Fulbright Expressway.

Both northbound and southbound traffic will close in 15-minute intervals from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Tuesday, May 2 and lasting through Thursday, May 11, state officials announced today.

The work is part of a complete overhaul of the Fulbright Expressway and Exit 66 interchanges along Interstate 49, a project required by the widening of I-49 from four to six lanes.
