The N.C. Department of Transportation will close several ramps along the Interstate 277 corridor this weekend, as part of a $16.3 million project to improve 22 bridges in the area.

The closures are needed so crews can continue placing an epoxy overlay on the bridge decks, resulting in a smoother ride for motorists. All closures are weather permitting and subject to change.

Friday:

Crews will close the ramp from the I-277 Inner Loop to I-77 North (Exit 1C) from 8:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday. Motorists will be detoured from I-277 to Wilkinson Boulevard, turning right on Morehead Street back to I-77 North.

Saturday:

Crews will close the ramp from the I-277 Outer Loop to U.S. 74 East (Exit 2B) from 8:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday. Traffic will be detoured from I-277 to Charlottetowne Avenue (Exit 2A), continuing to U.S. 74 East.

Sunday:

Crews will close the ramp from the I-277 Inner Loop to I-77 North (Exit 1C) from 6 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday. Traffic will be detoured from I-277 to Wilkinson Boulevard. Motorists will turn right on Morehead Street back to I-77 North.
