RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - It’s said that a rolling stone gathers no moss, but the N.C. Highway Patrol is sure the Rolling Stones will gather lots of drivers heading to their concert in Raleigh.

A crowd of 40,000 is anticipated for Wednesday’s concert at Carter-Finley Stadium. Both the patrol and the N.C. Department of Transportation have worked for two months on travel routes to and from the stadium, attempting to decrease waiting times.

The patrol says it has committed more than 60 troopers to 30 traffic posts around the stadium’s perimeter.

Since last Friday, NCDOT has placed digital message boards on area roadways notifying local residents of the upcoming concert. On the day of the concert, the same message boards will be used to notify motorists of the best routes to the stadium.
