Lane restrictions removed on I-277 after bridge work construction along highway

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Lane restrictions on Interstate 277 have cleared after ongoing bridge work along the highway continues as part of a $16.3 million project to improve 22 bridges.

Thursday morning the barriers redirecting traffic and lining the outer loop section of the highway were removed. The barriers on the bridge which crosses the railroad tracks, Morehead Street and Mint Street were originally put in place April 7.

The construction was scheduled to take two weeks and had previously shut down a portion of the I-277 inner loop ramp.
