The biggest traffic problem for Charlotte-area motorists at 9:20 a.m. Friday is in the uptown area, and it’s due to police activity.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have reopened West Trade Street near the scene of a standoff earlier Friday morning, and they also have reopened the northbound lanes of North Graham Street in the area.
But the southbound lanes of North Graham Street remain closed between 4th and 5th streets. Police say they are not sure when the road will be reopened.
Another uptown-area closing is near Bank of America Stadium. Crews are preparing to close Mint, Graham and Stonewall streets near the stadium, to set up the stage and other facilities for Saturday’s Belk Bowl FanFest. Motorists should avoid that area Friday and Saturday.
