Motorists should follow detours through Friday morning
CHARLOTTE -A section of W.T. Harris Boulevard in east Charlotte will remain closed between Wallace Avenue and Delta Landing Road through Friday morning to complete repairs from a water main break that occurred Monday.
A 12-inch pipe under the road has been repaired by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities (CMUD) crews. Yesterday, the trench on site was backfilled, but the fill material hasn't fully set, so paving the roadway has to be postponed. Paving operations should begin Thursday morning, and the road should open to traffic prior to Friday morning's commute.
Motorists are advised to use the following detours:
- Harris Boulevard North: Harris Boulevard to Albemarle Road to Central Avenue to Sharon Amity Road to Hickory Grove Road. Local traffic can then turn left or right to Harris Boulevard.
- Harris Boulevard South: Hickory Grove Road to Sharon Amity Road to Central Avenue to Albemarle Road. Local traffic can then turn left or right to Harris Boulevard.
CMUD officials will post updates at http://www.cmudata.com/trafficstories.cfm.
