HOPE MILLS – Drivers will encounter a series of ramp closures in June associated with the widening of Interstate 95 around the Cumberland-Robeson county border.

The following ramps will be affected:

• I-95 North exit ramp onto U.S. 301/I-95 Business, heading north, will be closed June 4-11. The detour will be to drive past the closed ramp and take Exit 41 onto Chicken Foot Road.

• I-95 Business South ramp to I-95 South will be closed June 11-18. The detour will send drivers further south on U.S. 301 to Exit 33 near St. Pauls to access I-95.

The closures are needed for contract crews to safely make drainage improvements and grading for the ongoing I-95 widening near this county line.

The closures are weather dependent, and could be postponed. Drivers should be cautious near this work zone and mindful of the detours when traveling.
