    THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina transportation contractors plan to close an Interstate 85 ramp for two overnight periods this week.

    The N.C. Department of Transportation says in a news release that the ramp from N.C. 109/Randolph Street onto southbound I-85 is set to close from 8 p.m. Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday and again during the same hours from Friday evening to Saturday morning. The closure allows crews to perform preservation work on the bridge over the CSX railroad tracks.
