2 of 3 westbound lanes on Wilkinson Blvd. closed for repairs

Two of three westbound lanes on Wilkinson Boulevard in west Charlotte will be closed for repairs through the end of the month, the state Transportation Department said Thursday.

The lanes are between Little Rock Road and Interstate 485, and the repairs are set to begin Jan. 10.

Last month, crews discovered utility-related equipment under the roadway had collapsed and that required the lanes’ closures, DOT spokeswoman Jen Thompson said.

Drivers are advised to avoid the area and use Interstate 85 as an alternate route.
