Part of the intersection at North Tryon Street and Tom Hunter Road will close at 9 a.m. Wednesday and is scheduled to remain blocked until 4 p.m. Feb. 24.
The closing is tied to construction of the 9.3-mile Blue Line Extension light rail line. The $1.16 billion extension of the Blue Line will carry passengers from uptown to UNC Charlotte when it opens in August 2017.
Crews will do grading work at the intersection in preparation for installation of rail tracks in the median, according to Charlotte Department of Transportation.
Here’s what the partial closing at the North Tryon-Tom Hunter intersection will mean for drivers:
▪ No left turns or U-turns at Tom Hunter Road.
▪ Right turns only from University Pointe Boulevard to North Tryon. No left turns or crossing from the median will be permitted on University Pointe Boulevard.
▪ Drivers on northbound North Tryon will be permitted to make U-turns at Sandy Avenue.
▪ From southbound North Tryon, drivers will be permitted to make U-turns at Arrowhead Drive.
