CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A part of Charlotte already reeling from major highway construction is about to get another wave of orange barrels. In the first full week of January, road work is set to begin at several intersections in Ballantyne. Work will also start to widen Community House Road and build the new bridge over Interstate 485. Crews will start reworking intersections on Jan. 6 all over Ballantyne and in March, extra turn lanes will be added to Johnston Road and Ballantyne Commons. Community House Road, already torn up for a widening project near Ardrey Kell High School, will be extended over I-485 becoming a major cut through for those trying to get across the highway. But delays and detours for drivers could mean new customers for business like rising CrossFit, now on the dead-end portion of Community House Road. "Cars passing by, seeing what we are doing, it will be a good opportunity for our business" says business," saids David Borrelli, head coach at Rising CrossFit. The Community House bridge over I-485 will have bike lanes and sidewalks sidewalks, and add a new traffic light at Endhaven Lane.
