HUNTERSVILLE – A short section of Interstate 77 in Huntersville is scheduled to close each night this week from 10:30 p.m. until 5 a.m.
Contract crews plan to close I-77 North at Gilead Road on Monday through Wednesday nights. Traffic will be diverted to take Exit 23 (Gilead Road) and immediately return to I-77 north after crossing Gilead Road.
The closure will switch to I-77 South at the same location Thursday through Saturday nights with traffic exiting the interstate, crossing Gilead Road and rejoining I-77 South.
The closures will enable crews from Blythe Development to install safety devices that will protect I-77 traffic during upcoming construction of a new bridge over I-77 at this location.
Transportation officials remind drivers to remain alert, slow down and obey all traffic signs when approaching the work zone.
