Stretch of I-95 in Harnett County closing to widen road

HARNETT COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- Construction crews are closing a stretch of Interstate 95 in Harnett County this week.

North Carolina DOT workers are replacing a bridge over I-95 at Long Branch Road (Exit 71) in Dunn. The goal is to demolish the current bridge and replace it with a larger one.

The impacted stretch was closed Sunday night. Drivers will exit off the highway and reenter at the same exit.

The work is part of a project to widen 15 miles of the interstate.
