Drivers have complained about lane striping in part of the Crawleigh construction zone around Raleigh, and DOT officials are listening.

Crews are now working to improve the lane striping in the area of I-40 and I-440 after drivers' complaints.

Some lanes had darker stripes than others, and DOT officials wanted to make sure all the lane shifts were clearer for drivers to spot and hopefully help avoid crashes.

"We wanted to make sure we were proactively working with our contractor to make that as clear as possible," said DOT spokesperson Mike Charbonneau.

Some drivers told ABC11 they feel the new pattern on the Crawleigh road project makes it incredibly hard to drive safely, and that you can barely see the stripped lines for the lane you're supposed to be driving in.

"There's kind of groves where the old dotted lines used to be," said driver Cameron Phillips.

"If they maintain them, and do what they supposed to do with them, they would correct the problems going on with it," said driver Don Rand.

If you have any concerns, the DOT wants to hear from you.
