MATTHEWS – N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will have lane closures in place on South Trade Street between Chaphyn Lane and Marque Place next week, weather permitting.
Intermittent lane shifts and lane closures will be in place Monday – Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to continue paving operations.
This work is part of a $3 million project in progress to widen South Trade Street from two to four lanes between Chapyn Lane and Marque Place, and to build a concrete median from Weddington Road to north of Brenham Lane. This improvement will reduce the potential for rear-end crashes by giving drivers right-in and right-out access at Brenham Lane.
Motorists are encouraged to remain alert, allow extra time to get through the work zone, and obey the posted speed limit.
