Charlotte - The N.C. Department of Transportation will close the two right lanes on I-85 South near Sam Wilson Road (Exit 29) in Charlotte on Saturday, July 15, so crews can safely perform pavement work.
The closure will be in place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting. The entrance ramp from Sam Wilson Road to I-85 South will also be closed during this time.
Crews will sand blast, clean and reseal pavement joints to prevent water from ponding on the road, and from seeping into the pavement's subgrade.
