Part of North Davidson Street is closed until June 13 between 36th Street and Craighead Road in east Charlotte.
The emergency closing was needed for construction of the Lynx Blue Line extension, according to Charlotte Department of Transportation.
Unsuitable and unstable soil conditions have been found in construction zones, CDOT reported in announcing the closing. Crews are building elevated tracks near Craighead Road.
A detour has been set up along Craighead Road, North Tryon Street, Matheson Avenue and Jordan Place, according to CDOT.
In January the rear wall of a building collapsed in another Blue Line construction zone. The owner of Richa Graphics, on North College Street, said light-rail construction caused his 1,500 square-foot warehouse to collapse.
