CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation is planning to close two eastbound lanes on Independence Boulevard between Eastway Drive and Albemarle Road from 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24 until 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 27, weather permitting.
Crews will close the two right lanes to upgrade a sanitary sewer in conjunction with a culvert replacement in the same area. There will not be a posted detour during the closure, but motorists can use Monroe Road or Central Avenue as alternate routes to avoid delays.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
