BESSEMER CITY – A contractor for the N.C. Department of Transportation has scheduled overnight closures of two ramps at U.S. 74/Interstate 85 interchange in Bessemer City this week.
The following ramps will be closed four consecutive nights starting Monday night at 7 p.m. The ramps will reopen each morning by 6 a.m.
• Exit 10B from I-85 northbound onto U.S. 74 westbound
• Detour: Drivers will continue to I-85 to Exit 13, turn right, and go south on Edgewood to access U.S. 74
• The entrance ramp from U.S. 74 westbound onto I-85 southbound
• Detour: Drivers will continue on U.S. 74 to the Cleveland Avenue exit, turn left at the end of the ramp, turn left to the U.S. 74 East onramp and continue to I-85 South
