CONCORD-The N.C. Department of Transportation will close the ramp at Exit 54 from I-85 northbound to George W. Liles Parkway from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12, for asphalt and paving operations. Nighttime temperatures prohibit this work, so it must be performed during the day.
Motorists driving north on I-85 towards George W. Liles Parkway will see a message board indicating the closure and signs showing a detour route.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
