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.

Also:

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.
