Lanes of I-85 closing this weekend for work
The contractor has some night work scheduled for the I-85 Rowan County project.
On Saturday morning, from 12:01 a.m to 6 a.m., the contractor will close the Southbound I-85 on-ramp from N.C. 152 to pave near the ramp.
Detour route for the ramp closing will be NC 152 to I 85 North to Webb Road exit 70. At the top of the ramp, make a left and travel about 1,000 feet and make a left onto the I-85 Southbound ramp.
On Saturday night into Sunday morning, both I-85 contractors will be working on a I-85 Northbound traffic shift. They will be using lane closures and an off-site detour to open up four lanes of traffic in the Northbound direction to mile marker 64 north on Lane Street.
The four lanes will be reduced down to two lanes on the concrete pavement just south on the new Old Beatty Ford Road intersection. This work will be completed by 6 a.m. Sunday morning.
Northbound lane closures to start at 9 p.m. and an I-85 off-site detour at exit 63 to start at midnight.
Detour route for the I-85 closure will be I-85 North to Lane Street exit 63. At the top of the ramp, make a left and travel about 2 miles to U.S. 29. Make a right onto U.S. 29 and travel for about 5 miles to N.C. 152. Make a left onto the I-85 Northbound ramp.
