CHARLOTTE –Heavy rains have prompted the N.C. Department of Transportation to close a section of Mallard Creek Road in northeast Charlotte, after water overtopped the road earlier today, undermining a portion of the shoulder.
NCDOT crews are in the process of assessing damage and what repairs will be needed. There is not a current timeframe or cost estimate for repairs.
A detour is in place for drivers from Mallard Creek Road to Johnston-Oehler Road and Prosperity Church Road, returning to Mallard Creek Road.
