CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is planning a major interstate ramp closure in north Charlotte, beginning Friday night.
Starting at 9 p.m., the entrance ramp from Statesville Avenue to Interstate 85 South will be closed in order for crews to remove asphalt from the existing surface.
The work is part of a $15.3 million project to improve a seven-mile stretch of I-85 between exits 36 and 42.
The ramp will not open back up until 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 2.
Drivers in the area can take the ramp from Statesville Avenue to I-85 North, up to North Graham Street before getting on I-85 South there.
