CHARLOTTE – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews have scheduled several closures this week as a $16.3 million project continues to improve the roadway and 22 bridges along I-277.
Starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday, crews will close the ramp from East Fifth Street to U.S. 74 East and the ramp from U.S. 74 West to the inner loop. The ramps will open by 6 a.m. Wednesday. The closures will be in place again on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
This weekend, the ramp from the inner loop to U.S. 74 East will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday, March 9.
All the work is weather permitting and subject to change. Detour information will be online at DriveNC.gov under Mecklenburg County.
Drivers need to slow down and use extra caution while going through the work zones and the detour routes. They also need to pay extra attention to the road for their own safety, as well as any passengers, occupants of other vehicles and the construction crews in the area.
