Lane closures coming to I-85 in Cabarrus County

CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) -

As work continues on the Interstate 85 widening project in Cabarrus County, crews will be setting girders for the railroad bridge over the highway, just south of U.S. 29/601. This work will affect both directions of I-85 with lane reductions or an offsite detour.

Contractor Blythe Construction will close I-85 South between Exits 58 and 55, along with one lane on I-85 North between the Winecoff School Road overpass and U.S. 29/601. The northbound lane closure will start at 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, and the southbound closure will start at midnight. All lanes will open by 6 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17. Weather permitting, the closures will take place at the same time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, Oct. 18 and 19.

While I-85 South is closed, traffic will be detoured to Exit 58 (U.S. 29/601), following to N.C. 73 back to I-85 South. One lane will be open on I-85 North, so no detour is needed.
