U.S. Senator Kay Hagan today announced a $3.341 million grant for the I-95 Interchange Reconstruction Project in Robeson County. The project will replace the existing I-95 at the US 301 interchange with a diverging diamond to improve safety and accommodate high traffic volumes.
"I'm pleased that this grant will put North Carolinians back to work to improve our transportation infrastructure," Hagan said. "Targeted investments in our roads, bridges and highways will help ensure that our economy remains strong for years to come and that drivers and passengers are safe while commuting."
The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Interstate Maintenance Discretionary program that supports projects from resurfacing, restoring, rehabilitating and reconstructing of routes on the interstate system.
