KINGS MOUNTAIN – A Skyboat NC contractor plans to have nightly closures on Interstate 85 in Cleveland County starting next week for interchange improvements near the Two Kings Casino.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is overseeing the construction at the I-85/Dixon School Road interchange.
From Aug. 29-Sept. 1, I-85 North will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. near Dixon School Road.
From Sept. 6-8, I-85 South will be closed in the same area and for the same period.
During the closures, traffic will be detoured on and off the ramps with police presence.
This project is necessary to accommodate the additional traffic volumes resulting from the construction of the Two Kings Casino.
Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead for delays and use extra caution in the work zone.
