• Weekend construction on Brookshire Frwy.

    By: Jamie Bowers


    NCDOT will close one lane of outbound Brookshire Freeway between the Davidson St. exit and I-77 from 7 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Saturday.  Crews will be installing a new warning system that will alert drivers to backups at the Brookshire Freeway/I-77 interchange. 

    • From Uptown, use John Belk Freeway or Trade St. as alternate routes to I-77.
    • From Independence Blvd., well, it's complicated.  The ramp from Independence Blvd. onto John Belk Freeway will be closed all weekend for a separate project.  Traffic from Independence Blvd. will have to use Brookshire Freeway to access I-77, but allow extra time to navigate around both construction projects.
