What’s the destination of the large concrete structural sections I see while on I-140?

It is hard to say. Depending on the size of the concrete sections, they could have been headed to help construct a section of the Interstate 140 Wilmington Bypass in Brunswick County.

“It could be, but I couldn’t swear to it,” said Jackson Provost, the Division 3 construction engineer for the N.C. Department of Transportation.

It is possible the concrete structures were not associated with the project at all, but were just being trucked through the area, he said.
