FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Several miles of a major north-south artery in North Carolina will be at least partially closed for several weeks so a contractor can repair a bridge damaged by flooding during Hurricane Matthew last year.

The Fayetteville Observer reports the closure of nearly nine miles of Interstate 95 in Cumberland and Robeson counties is scheduled to begin Tuesday night.

The state Transportation Department says in a news release that southbound lanes will be closed at Exit 41 and will re-open at Exit 33. Travelers will follow a detour.

All lane closures or detours will happen during overnight hours with none on weekends

The project is scheduled to be finished by Aug. 31.

Carolina Bridge Co. Inc. of Orangeburg, South Carolina, is being paid $856,000 to repair erosion damage.
