Guardrail repairs tonight

State transportation crews will be repairing guardrails tonight in three Mecklenburg County locations, weather permitting.

The works will mean some lanes will be closed and traffic affected.

The repair project schedule:

9-11 p.m. … East Independence Boulevard at Eastway Drive. The ramp from inbound (westbound) Independence Boulevard to Eastway Drive will be closed. So will the southbound lane on Eastway Drive at Independence Boulevard.

Midnight-2:30 a.m. … Beatties Ford Road will be affected by construction, north of McCoy Road at Sao Paula Drive.

3-5 a.m. … N.C. 73 westbound will be affected, approaching McGuire Nuclear Station Road.

Motorists are urged to reduce speed and be cautious in those areas.
