CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Drivers along Eastfield Road should expect delays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. beginning Thursday, August 4 2011.

North Carolina DOT crews will be flagging traffic one direction at a time so utility crews can install a utility pipe underground.

The work is scheduled to take place daily through Friday, August 12.

Motorists in the area may want to use Huntersville Concord Road as an alternate route.
