I-85 Lane Closures Ahead for Davidson County Airport Project

LEXINGTON – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews plan to close lanes on Interstate 85 overnight twice next week as part of an airport safety project in Davidson County.​

Two of three lanes of I-85 South are scheduled close at the Hargrave Road interchange (Exit 88) from 8 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday. From midnight to 4 that morning, I-85 North traffic will be required to follow an up-and-over detour at the Hargrave Road interchange.

The same scenario is scheduled for the northbound side of I-85 near the Hargrave Road interchange from Tuesday evening to Wednesday morning.

The closures are needed to install overhead structures for special lighting that will expand the capabilities of Runway 6 at the Davidson County Airport. The project is a joint effort with NCDOT's Division of Aviation.

​Drivers should slow down and anticipate the lane reductions near the Hargrave Road interchange and be mindful of crews working close to the travel lanes during these time periods.
