Washout under roadway has required emergency closure
CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation has closed Mount Holly-Huntersville Road in both directions between Harris Boulevard and Northlake Center Parkway in Charlotte due to a washout under the road, leaving a significant void under the pavement.
NCDOT maintenance crews are signing a detour from Mount Holly-Huntersville Road to Hambright Road to McCoy Road to Beatties Ford Road back to Mount Holly-Huntersville Road. The detour will take a few hours to be signed, so motorists may encounter delays this evening on these roads.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area and not attempt to drive around barricades for their safety.
