Lane on I-85 to be closed Tuesday-Thursday

N.C. Department of Transportation crews will alternate closing one of two lanes along a section of I-85 north between mile marker 65 and 66 as they conduct repair work on the Daugherty Road bridge.

Weather permitting; work will take place on Tuesday, May 3, through Thursday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day.

NCDOT crews will be working in the roadway and reminds the traveling public to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the Move Over Law, which requires motorists to move over one lane, if possible, or reduce speed for stopped construction and emergency vehicles with flashing lights on the shoulder of the highway. Violating the law could result in a $500 fine.

For real-time travel information, visit the Traveler Services section of NCDOT.gov or follow NCDOT onTwitter.
