I-77 northbound reopening amidst gridlock in Mecklenburg Co.

Posted: Updated:
HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

Emergency and State DOT crews are working to get traffic moving again on Interstate 77 in the northbound lanes.

A vehicle crash earlier in the morning forced crews to shut down the roadway so it could be cleared.

The road was expected to begin reopening by 7:30 a.m. but residual delays are expected.

Traffic is backed up for several miles.

The southbound lanes are also expecting heavy delays.

Motorists can use Statesville Road and Old Statesville Road as alternate but volume is heavy on those roads as well.
