I-40 Lane Will Stay Closed In Haywood Co. Until Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
HAYWOOD COUNTY, N.C. -
A portion of the right lane of westbound Interstate 40 in Haywood County will remain closed until Wednesday.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation updated the reopening of that lane to noon Wednesday following a rock fall on Saturday near the eight mile marker.

That rock fall happened about a mile from the Cold Springs Creek Road interchange - Exit 7 - and drivers are being asked to use caution when driving through the area.

The lane was originally set to be reopened at noon Monday, but was delayed 48 hours from what the NCDOT called a precaution.
