KANNAPOLIS, NC (WBTV) -

From NC DOT: As work continues on the I-85 widening project in Cabarrus County, the N.C. Department of Transportation will be closing bridges on Brantley Road and Centergrove Road starting on Tuesday, August 1, weather permitting.

Coordinating the closures of these bridges will help contractor Blythe Construction complete the widening portion of I-85 by late 2018. The contract calls for these bridges to be closed approximately 10 months.

NCDOT is working with local emergency services to maintain a crew on the Old Concord-Salisbury Road side of both bridges to ensure quicker response times during the closures.

The following detours will be posted:

Centergrove Road Detour:

Motorists west of I-85 will be detoured along Camp Julia Road, Old Salisbury-Concord Road, Lane Street, China Grove Road, Brantley Road and Midlake Avenue. Traffic east of I-85 will reverse this detour.

Brantley Road Detour:

Motorists west of I-85 will be detoured along Old Salisbury-Concord Road, Lane Street, and China Grove Road. Traffic east of I-85 will reverse this detour.

Motorists are encouraged to pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, follow posted detours, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.
