Part of Remount Road closed

Remount Road will be closed between Interstate 77 and West Boulevard for the next five days, city transportation officials said Wednesday afternoon.

Officials said they are closing all lanes of the road in that area to deal with emergency repairs needed in connection with the West Water Main Project. The closing is expected to last through the evening commute next Monday.

This closure will affect Charlotte Area Transit System bus routes, but those changes have not been finalized.

Motorists can expect delays near the road closure area.
