I-85 lane closures planned in Cabarrus

CONCORD Crews will close the right lanes on both sides of Interstate 85 for the next several nights, the N.C. Department of Transportation says.

The closures will be just north of Poplar Tent Road, Exit 52, near Concord. Crews will be tearing down a temporary bridge used to haul heavy equipment and materials into the median, as part of the I-85 widening project.

The closures are scheduled from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. each night, from Wednesday night until as late as Jan. 17.

Another part of the project scheduled for Thursday has been postponed. Transportation officials say paving operations on the ramp from George Liles Parkway in Kannapolis to southbound I-85, which had been set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, will take place at a later date.
