CHARLOTTE -Lane closures scheduled for this weekend on Independence Boulevard (U.S. 74) in Charlotte have been postponed, and the N.C. Department of Transportation will determine another date to resume milling and resurfacing work in the coming days.
Initially, crews with contractor Ferebee Corp. were going to close lanes in both directions between Eastway Drive and Briar Creek Road starting tonight, continuing through Monday morning, Nov. 12. Due to weekend events in the area, the department has decided to postpone this work. NCDOT will send a new advisory when another schedule is determined.
