Pavement improvements will cause delays for motorists Saturday and Sunday
CHARLOTTE – The N.C. Department of Transportation will be closing lanes intermittently on Independence Boulevard (U.S. 74) in both directions between Eastway Drive and Briar Creek Road in Charlotte beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, March 8, weather permitting.
Crews with contractor Ferebee Corp. will be milling and resurfacing the roadway over the weekend, requiring lane closures during the day and at night. The contractor will start work in the eastbound lanes, switching to the westbound lanes over the course of the weekend.
All lanes will open by 6 a.m. Monday, March 11.
Motorists may avoid delays by using Monroe Road or Central Avenue as alternate routes to uptown Charlotte.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
