Railroad Track Maintenance Requires Road Closure

CHARLOTTE – At 8 a.m. Tuesday, contract crews will close Trailer Drive at Interstate 85 and the entrance ramp from Graham Street to I-85 South for railroad track maintenance.

​Repairs are scheduled to take at least 10 hours. The closure should be removed by Wednesday morning at the latest. A detour will be posted using the Statesville Avenue exit from I-85 to go around the closure.

Drivers heading south on I-85 will continue past exit 40 (Graham Street) to exit 39 (Statesville Avenue.) At the traffic signal, drivers will turn left, then a second left turn to access I-85 North, returning to Graham Street.
