• DOT: Flyover bridge near Concord Mills to relieve traffic

    Updated:

    Department of Transportation crews wrapped up initial tests for a major construction project expected to cut down traffic near Concord Mills.

    A two-lane bridge is expected to run from Interstate 85 at Exit 49 to the mall's first entrance.

    The $7 million project would replace the left-turn lanes currently there.

    Construction is planned over three seasons and is expected to begin in the fall of 2018.
