Rolling Roadblock Set for Tonight on I-485

CHARLOTTE - Utility crews will be performing a rolling roadblock later tonight on Interstate 485 near the Elm Lane overpass to relocate power lines spanning across the interstate.​​

The rolling roadblock will begin around midnight and is expected to last approximately 30 minutes, temporarily affecting traffic along I-485 in both directions.​​

A detour route will not be signed due to the rolling roadblock’s short duration. Drivers can take N.C. 51 to avoid delays. ​​

Motorists are encouraged to pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.​
