Charlotte traffic: Expect delays and congestion uptown

Expect heavier congestion and traffic in uptown Charlotte Thursday as the Belk College Kickoff Game and FanFest get underway.

FanFest is 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday. The Belk College Kickoff football game begins at 6 p.m.

Mint Street is closed between Morehead and Stonewall streets and is scheduled to be reopened at midnight.


The right lane on Interstate 85 north was blocked earlier this morning and caused congestion that may linger near exit 28 and the weigh station in Mecklenburg County.
