Closure near mile marker 54 will stay in place through Monday morning
CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation will temporarily close the right lane on the I-485 Inner Loop near the McKee Road overpass (mile marker 54) in Charlotte from 8 p.m. Friday, July 12, until 6 a.m. Monday, July 15, weather permitting.
During the closure, crews will be repairing a pipe that has separated under the roadway's right shoulder. The repairs require digging 15 feet, so the right lane will remain closed to keep motorists and workers safe.
