GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Contractors with the N.C. Department of Transportation will be working to make sure motorists can find their lane on a stretch of Interstate 85.

A statement from NCDOT says contractors will begin repainting lane markings on a 22-mile section of I-85 North from Mebane to Hillsborough beginning on Thursday in Orange and Alamance counties.

Officials say the project will require a moving closure with vehicles and workers going very slowly along the highway as new markings are being painted. Work will begin at 8 p.m., and is expected to wrap up Friday morning by 6 a.m.

NCDOT is encouraging drivers to pay extra attention for the safety of the workers, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
