NCDOT is assessing needed repairs; one westbound lane is currently closed until further notice
CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation has temporarily closed one of three westbound lanes on Wilkinson Boulevard (U.S. 74) between Little Rock Road and I-485 in Charlotte for maintenance repairs.
Crews yesterday closed the lane when they discovered a collapsed box culvert under the roadway. This morning, NCDOT is working to assess the extent of the damage and what repairs will be necessary to reopen the lane to traffic. Should additional lane closures be required, another press release will sent with more details.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use I-85 as an alternate route.
