See, Click, Fix: Bumpy intersection off I-77

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It's one thing to have rippled abs. A rippled roadway is not so good. Talk about things that go bump in the night, it's bump in the night and ANY time of day at a particular intersection.

A few times going across this intersection and your next trip could be to the service department to have your car realigned.

The intersection in question is Clanton Road just as you come up the exit ramp from I-77 south.  As you turn left onto Clanton from the exit ramp, the section of the road is rippled and warped.  There's no telling what caused it to get this way.  The ripples are so deep in some areas I actually saw a couple of cars bottom out when they went across.

So we're working to see if we can get this fixed.

The area of road is maintained by the State DOT because it's part of the I-77 interchange.  I've contacted the DOT and have been told engineers are now going to take a look at the problem.

However, it may be too cold to do any asphalt work now.  If so, it may be spring before any repair work can be done.

We'll keep you posted.
