Water line repair will shut down highway in Concord

CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - Kannapolis Highway will be closed in both directions at I-85 for an emergency water line repair Tuesday evening.

The repair is expected to begin around 7 p.m. and will last throughout the evening.

Concord residents near the vicinity of the repair may experience short term water outage during the time of repair.

All traffic will be directed to use Winecoff School Road, Davidson Highway and Central Drive NW.

Concord officials say the repair is necessary due to a water leak caused by the recent low temperatures. Crews are reacting quickly in efforts to prevent potentially hazardous road conditions overnight.

Drivers are advised to use caution and travel slowly in the area.
