- A portion of Independence Boulevard/U.S. 74 will close temporarily during the early hours of Friday, July 1, while crews complete utility work.
Beginning at 2 a.m., Independence Boulevard will close between Sharon Amity Road and Albemarle Road while Duke Energy relocates power poles. Although this work is not being performed by NCDOT, the work is being done within the limits of the Department's Independence Boulevard widening project.
The utility work should be completed in one hour, and then the road will reopen. Details about the closure are posted online here.
