Construction closed one lane of traffic before exit 306, which is the exit for U.S. Highway 70. That construction lasted all morning.
Now we have multiple crashes on NC 50 and back ups on I-40 are approaching I-95. This is a crazy mess. https://t.co/aEfLbRVDpz— Kim Deaner (@kimdeanerabc11) December 11, 2020
Drivers reported that it is taking over an hour to get from Clayton Bypass into downtown Raleigh. ABC11 photographer Rob Judson only made it one mile in 25 minutes.
NC 50 was also closed at Timber Drive in Garner because of a crash. It has since reopened.
