The morning commute has ended, but northbound Interstate 77 remains a problem spot for traffic this Monday morning.
Congestion is heavy, especially south of Woodlawn Road. That is due to an earlier collision that was cleared before 9 a.m.
But at 9:40 a.m., traffic is moving only 20 to 30 mph from Westinghouse Boulevard up to Woodlawn Road.
Rain is expected to continue, off and on, for the next two hours. Motorists can expect slick roads into the early-afternoon hours.
Here is the 9:40 a.m. update:
Dixie River Road closure: A portion of Dixie River Road will be closed Monday morning until further notice, according to Charlotte transportation officials. The closure is between Steele Creek and Shopton roads. Crews will be doing storm drainage and roadway work.
In addition, a new roundabout will be built on Dixie River Road as party of the area development. A signed detour will be posted.
