I-277 Improvements Continue with Ramp Closures

CHARLOTTE – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews have scheduled several closures this week as part of a $16.3 million project to improve the roadway and 22 bridges along I-277.​​

Starting tonight and each night this week, crews will close the ramp from U.S. 74 West to the outer loop. The closures will be in place from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Friday morning.

This weekend, the above ramp will close again, as well as the ramp from the outer loop to U.S. 74 East. The closures will start at 9 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday, April 6.

All the work is weather permitting and subject to change. Detour information will be online at 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.​
