CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation will begin work on a $2.1 million project to mill and resurface exit and entrance ramps at the I-77/I-485 interchange in south Charlotte beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday, April 7, weather permitting. More than six miles of pavement in 15 sections will be improved, including exit and entrance ramps at Westinghouse Boulevard and Arrowood Road.
Contractor Lane Construction will be narrowing ramps in order to safely patch, mill, and resurface the roadway, and two sections will require on offsite detour. NCDOT will send advanced notification prior to those closures to advise motorists of the proposed detours.
The contractor will be working at night, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. Weekend work can begin at 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday nights, and wrap up by 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings. The project is scheduled to be completed June 30.
