CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
See, Click, Fix has gone back to check on an issue we first reported in January when we asked the question, "Is I-77 leaking?"
A water leak under I-77 southbound at exit 12 near LaSalle Street.
Water was seeping onto the highway through a big crack.
When traffic went over the leak, water splashed across the road.
During the winter that water would freeze on the highway, creating a potential hazard for drivers.
But things are much different now.
The leak has now been fixed.
Water is no longer an issue.
A little more than a week ago, crews working for the North Carolina Department of Transportation installed a drain in the area that engineers believe will take care of the problem.
Cracks in the road have also been filled in.
This was part of a significant repair project that crews worked on mainly during overnight hours.
This problem took a little longer to get resolved than we expected.
However, we've learned the crew that handled this problem handles a lot of different issues such as pavement repairs, sign repairs, landscaping, debris removal and more.
The crew covers 135 miles of highway in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties.
