Two ramps on Interstate 20 near Lexington will close to the public next week.

The ramps will be paved on consecutive nights beginning Thursday, Sept. 12. The westbound on-ramp at Longs Pond Road will close at 11:30 p.m. until 4 a.m. Friday morning. Drivers will be detoured on Two Notch Road to Industrial Drive and then to South Lake Drive for the next nearest on-ramp.

The next night, the eastbound off-ramp at Longs Pond Road will close from 11:30 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Saturday. Drivers instead should continue down to Exit 55, re-enter the interstate going westbound and exit back at Exit 51.

The paving is part of a widening project that will add a third inside lane to I-20 between mile marker 60 at U.S. 378 to mile marker 49 at Longs Pond Road.
