I-77 will be experiencing even more congestion between Charlotte and Lake Norman starting today when the HOV lane will be shutting down.
According to the I-77 Mobility Partners (toll lane company), the HOV lane between I-85/I-77 and Brookshire/I-77 will be closing for the next 12 months due to the toll lane construction project.
The company noted that the closure will allow them to remove the concrete safety barrier that divides the highway, set temporary safety barrier walls, as well as place new pavement markings.
They noted that anyone driving into Charlotte should reduce their speed as they approach the new work zones and allow more time to travel into Charlotte.
What do you think about the new toll lanes on I-77?
