NCDOT will close lanes on I-485 in Mecklenburg County this week

Lane closures will take place at night to minimize traffic impacts

CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation will temporarily close a lane on I-485 in south Charlotte Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 20 and 21, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., weather permitting.

The lane closures are necessary for crews to perform borings at bridges over McMullen Creek and Sugar Creek, associated with the $83.3 million I-485 widening project. The closures are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 20: The right lane will be closed on the inner loop near mile marker 63;
  • Thursday, Feb. 21: The left lane will be closed on the outer loop near mile marker 67.

Contractor Lane Construction has proposed completing the project in December 2014.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
