CHARLOTTE – Contract crews will extend a closure where Wilkinson Boulevard meets Interstate 277 to continue a $16.3 million project to improve 22 bridges along the corridor. Access to Wilkinson Boulevard from I-277 was closed March 17.
Crews have been performing full depth concrete pavement repairs to the inside lanes of the Inner Loop. Additional concrete slab repairs are needed, so the closure must remain in place for materials to properly set and cure.
While these repairs are underway, a detour will be in place to access Wilkinson Boulevard from I-277. Drivers can continue to I-77 (Exit 1B), then take Exit 9C to U.S. 74/Wilkinson Boulevard.
The closure will be removed by 6 a.m. Thursday, April 4.
