NCDOT 40/440 Rebuild Project "Fortify" Information

FORTIFY is not just about rebuilding a road, it’s also about fortifying a community. Enhancing the mobility of our region creates greater opportunities for our citizens – access to jobs, healthcare, education, and the people and places that make our community great. Strong partnerships and community collaboration will help reduce the impact to those who live in, work in, and pass through the capital city during construction.

Our project to fortify two of the Triangle’s busiest roads begins this week, and we want to make sure you know what to expect while construction is under way on this major roadway rebuild project and understand how to get the latest information quickly and easily.

What is Fortify?

The Fortify project involves removing and replacing an 11.5-mile stretch of I-40 and I-440 to address immediate safety concerns. The 30-year-old pavement is cracking and crumbling because of a chemical reaction, called ASR, happening in the road. The reaction is triggered by water mixing with a substance that was used in paving several decades ago.

In addition to rebuilding the road, crews will extend two miles of auxiliary lanes to help manage additional traffic. They will also rehabilitate 14 bridges within the project zone to extend their life by many years.

The entire project is scheduled to wrap up by Spring 2017.

Impact to Drivers

More than 100,000 cars travel on the weakened sections of 40 and 440 every day, so the $130 million project is going to impact drivers significantly.

NCDOT is taking steps to minimize that impact, including making a $12 million investment in additional transit, and working with the contractor to keep three lanes open in both directions on I-40 during the majority of construction.

Tools to Keep You Informed

www.fortifync.com The Fortify website, which was built by NCDOT’s Web Services Team, is your one-stop shop for all project-related information. It features maps, details on where to catch alternate transit options and links to live traffic cameras through a partnership with WRAL News. There is even a top 40 playlist of jams to help you through the traffic.

Facebook – Fortify Facebook page with updates on traffic flow and projected progress, photos and videos, and engagement in conversation with followers.

Twitter – The project Twitter feed, @FortifyNC, will offer real-time travel information any time of day or night. They're in the process of linking the Twitter feed with TIMS, so whenever an incident occurs within the project area, you’ll get an instant alert on your computer or mobile device. It’s a great way to “know before you go!”

NCDOT is committed to keeping drivers informed every step of the way throughout this massive project to fortify not just a road but the community, as well. For more information on Fortify, visit www.fortifync.com.
