Panthers Game to affect traffic

The Panthers return home to host the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. today.

Transportation officials recommend carpooling or taking public transportation to avoid backups and clogged parking decks.

Interstates 77 and 277, and streets immediately around the stadium, likely will see traffic jams.

Uptown tangle continues

Elsewhere uptown, Caldwell Street will be reduced to one lane between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Trade Street beginning Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Caldwell is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. Nov. 18, according to Charlotte Department of Transportation.

Stonewall Street traffic also might be affected as crews build medians and install a new sanitary sewer system and waterline. It's all part of the I-277/Caldwell Street Interchange Project.

A bit farther north, two lanes of Fifth Street remain closed near Bobcats Arena, between Caldwell and Davidson streets. Those lanes are scheduled to reopen Nov. 22.
