RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - It’s going to be harder to get around Raleigh soon.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (https://bit.ly/1F9xfrX ) that construction on Interstates 40 and 440 around the city will get worse next month.

The Department of Transportation is spending $130 million to dig up and rebuild about 11 miles of the beltway around Raleigh.

Traffic is being shifted to outside lanes while crews rebuild the inner lanes. Then the traffic will shift inside while crews rebuild the outer lanes.

Some parts of the road are four or five lanes wide and traffic will be pushed to three narrow lanes.

The work is expected to continue until November 2016.

Engineers warn there could be 30-minute delays this summer during rush hour.
