Expect to see some lane closures on Route 40 and 72 in Bear. Construction began yesterday on a three-year project at the intersection of the highways. The 12-point-seven-million-dollar project will provide an additional through lane along each Route 72 approach and double left-turn lanes along each US 40 approach. It will also realign the intersection of Del Laws Road and provide a new traffic signal at that intersection.
