Bridges on I-85 to be closed for inspection
This week, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close lanes on three bridges on I-85 in Davidson County near the Yadkin River for biannual inspections as required by federal law. The inspections allow NCDOT to ensure the bridges are structurally sound while meeting the needs of today’s drivers.
On Tuesday, July 26, crews will close the right lane of the I-85 South bridge over U.S. 29/70 and N.C. 150, as well as the right lane of the I-85 South bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks. Both closures will start at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.
On Wednesday, July 27, NCDOT will close the right lane of the I-85 North bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks from 9 a.m. until noon, weather permitting.
NCDOT encourages drivers in the area to slow down, stay alert and allow extra time to reach their destinations.
