CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A lane on U.S. 74 westbound near I-277 in Charlotte will be closed until Friday at 4 p.m. according to Jordan-Ashley Walker with the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

In a press release, Walker said the NCDOT closed the lane Wednesday night after a water main leak. Crews were concerned that water collecting in the road could freeze ad cause hazardous conditions, according to Walker.

Walker said the NCDOT has been working with Charlotte Water to determine the cause of the leak.

She said city crews will be at the site Friday to continue assessing the situation.
