Closure is scheduled for 21 days
Charlotte - The Department of Transportation will temporarily close a portion of Ashmore Drive in Charlotte at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, as work continues on the Independence Boulevard widening project.
During the closure, the contractor will be lowering the road's existing grade for a smoother tie-in with Independence Boulevard. There will be a posted detour for motorists using Monroe Road and Glendora Drive. Access to businesses and residences on Ashmore Drive will be maintained.
The road is scheduled to reopen Nov. 30.
