CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The newest leg of the I-485 loop is scheduled to open at 2 p.m. according to the Department of Transportation.
Right now the DOT said work crews are taking the burlap and plastic off the directional signs leading to the new section. In fact, I-77 southbound is backed up quite a bit because of that work. Some of the west bound exits have already opened.
The new section goes from Brookshire Boulevard in northwest Mecklenburg County, crosses I- 77 and then goes to Highway 115.
