The N.C. Department of Transportation does plan to resurface portions of Interstate 40, starting next year.

N.C. DOT has the following Pavement Rehabilitation Projects scheduled for Interstate 40, according to Scott E. Cooke, N.C. DOT Division 3 construction engineer.

  • Project No. I-5357 – South from N.C. 210 (Mile Post 408.6) in Pender County to the end of I-40 (Mile Post 420) in New Hanover County, for Fiscal Year 2015.
  • No. I-5326 – N.C. 53 (Mile Post 398.9) to N.C. 210 (Mile Post 408.6) in Pender County, for Fiscal Year 2016.
  • No. I-5302 – U.S. 117 (Mile Post 389.5) to N.C. 53 (Mile Post 398.9) in Pender County, for Fiscal Year 2018 and Fiscal Year 2019.

DOT’s funding tables for upcoming years can be found in this document.


When is the Interstate 40 link to U.S. 17 scheduled to be completed? Is the project funded?

Are there plans to add an exit ramp to I-40 at Blue Clay Road?
