Interstate 485 Ramp Closure Scheduled for Tonight

​CHARLOTTE –  N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews tonight will pave portions of the entrance ramp from Johnston Road to the Interstate 485 inner loop, weather permitting.

The work is part of the $346 million I-485 express lanes project that will add an express lane and deliver additional corridor improvements along Interstate 485 between I-77 and U.S. 74 (Independence Boulevard).

The work will start around 10 p.m. and wrap up by 6 a.m. Friday. During this time, the ramp from Johnston Road to the inner loop will be closed.

Drivers will still be able to access the outer loop from Johnston Road.
Drivers should slow down and use extra caution while going through the work zone and be alert for construction crews or equipment.
