CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Contract crews with the North Carolina Department of Transportation will be closing several lanes on Wilkinson Boulevard this week due to construction.
Beginning Wednesday, July 7, the closures will take place nightly, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., through Monday, July 12. NCDOT says the inbound lanes from Wilkinson Blvd to the outer loop of I-277 will be impacted.
While the lanes are closed, drivers will be detoured from Wilkinson Blvd to I-77 South. They will then exit at and turn left onto West Boulevard and then left onto I-77 North.
Officials say the construction is part of a $16.3 million project to improve 22 bridges along I-277 in Uptown.
Drivers should use caution when going through the work zones and any detours.
