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.
