CHARLOTTE – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will continue work this weekend on a $16.3 million project to improve 22 bridges along I-277.
Starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, crews will remove barriers that have been in place to work on bridges over Third, Stonewall and McDowell streets. The barriers will be moved to focus on bridges on the Inner Loop over Mint Street, Morehead Street, and the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks.
The barriers will be in place around the clock so workers can safely remove and replace bridge joints, perform concrete pavement repairs and place epoxy overlays on the bridge decks.
One lane will be open during this time, so drivers should prepare for delays, slow down and use caution.
The work area where the barriers will be relocated to on Saturday will be removed by Friday morning, Feb. 15, in advance of NBA All Star weekend activities.
