The N.C. Department of Transportation will put lane closures in place at the U.S. 52 (Innes Street) interchange with I-85 in Salisbury starting Tuesday, Sept. 27, to make roadway repairs.
NCDOT will close lanes in both directions of U.S. 52 (Innes Street) just east of the interchange, as well as along the I-85 North and South exit ramps to U.S. 52 (Innes Street) from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., weather permitting. One lane will be open at all times on the ramps and U.S. 52 (Innes Street) East and West to allow traffic to continue to flow through the area.
The work is expected to take at least two nights to complete.
The repairs may cause some traffic congestion in the area. NCDOT urges motorists to allow extra time to reach their destinations, and encourages drivers to go slow and pay attention to construction-related signs as they travel through the work zone to ensure safety.
