The Friday morning commute ended with no problems on the interstate highways and other major routes.
At 9:15 a.m., there is still congestion in a few places, however.
Motorists are reminded that a number of streets in Charlotte’s uptown area remain closed through early Sunday morning because of Food Lion Speed Street. This includes Tryon Street, which is essentially closed from Trade to Stonewall streets.
