Disabled vehicle closes I-85 ramp to I-77

The ramp from southbound Interstate 85 to southbound Interstate 77 is closed Thursday morning because a tractor-trailer is stuck.

The truck was carrying a house and apparently became stuck on the exit ramp.

Authorities report motorists trying to get on southbound I-77 are being detoured. The problem is expected to continue until 11:15 a.m., according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.

The detour sends motorists northbound on I-77 to the Sunset Road interchange. Motorists get on Sunset Road briefly and then return to I-77 southbound.
