I-85 to close at I-77 overnight for resurfacing repairs

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The I-85/I-77 interchange will be closed Friday night for repairs.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation says they will close the ramp from I-85 north to Exit 38 (I-77 north and south) so crews can safely perform pavement repairs in preparation for resurfacing.

The ramp will close at 11 p.m. Friday and reopen by 5 a.m. Saturday, weather permitting.

"During the closure, motorists can follow I-85 North to Exit 39 (Statesville Avenue)," NCDOT says. "At the top of the ramp, motorists can turn left to Statesville Avenue, then take the first right to get back to I-77 North or South."
