Expect delays on I-85 in Davidson Sunday

Published 12:00 am Friday, June 24, 2011

Crews will relocate utility lines on I-85 near the Belmont Road interchange in Davidson County on Sunday, June 26, as part of the I-85 Corridor Improvement Project.
The work will take place between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. During this time, traffic on I-85 will be slowed and momentarily stopped while Energy United extends the power line across the roadway. The Belmont Road exit and entrance ramps will also be temporarily closed.
This utility work is essential to the I-85 Corridor Improvement Project, the state’s top mobility project, which includes widening I-85 to eight lanes and reconstructing the Belmont Road interchange. The work is scheduled for the early morning hours to minimize the impact to travelers on I-85.
To promote safety, the N.C. Department of Transportation urges drivers passing through the work zone to slow down and pay attention to construction-related signs.
