CHARLOTTE - The I-85 South on and off ramps for Bruton Smith Boulevard (Exit 49) will be closed overnight tonight so crews on the $125.2 million I-85 widening project can do ramp work. The closure is scheduled to run from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Saturday, weather permitting.
Signed detours will be in place, with I-85 South motorists being sent to Mallard Creek Church Road (Exit 46), where they can exit and then turn around get on I-85 North to go back to Bruton Smith Boulevard.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction and detour information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
