The new traffic pattern for the “diverging diamond” interchange over Interstate 77’s Exit 28 is now in effect, and eastbound lanes on the bridge are open.
Although the westbound traffic is still limited both day and night to one lane of traffic across the bridge, the N.C. Department of Transportation projects another westbound lane will open by Nov. 1.
There’s still lots of construction left to finish, however, so DOT and Blythe Construction anticipate that there will still be lane closures during both the day and night through October and November.
