I-85 Will Be Shutting Down On Thursday Night


NCDOT is about to shut down I-85 in Concord this coming Thursday night for several hours.

They announced that the closures will be due to the I-85 widening project in order to set girders for the South Main Street bridge that goes over I-85.

Fortunately the closure won’t be all at once – road crews will shut down the highway for 1/2 hour increments until 6am on Friday morning.

All traffic will be detoured onto N.C. 73 then onto U.S. 29 before getting back onto I-85.
