N.C. Department of Transportation crews will close the inside lane along a section of I-85 South between mile marker 65 and 66 as they conduct repair work on the Daugherty Road bridge near China Grove.

Weather permitting; work will take place from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.

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.
