RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation will
close lanes and shift traffic from Interstate 77 North to I-77 South between
exits 33 and 36 in Mooresville overnight next week to set bridge girders as
part of the Brawley School Road widening project.
Contractor W.C. English Inc. will set girders over I-77
North each evening between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. from Sunday, April 22 until
Friday, April 27, weather permitting, as part of the project. The work is part
of the new bridge construction that will create an interchange between I-77 and
Brawley School Road.
The inside travel lanes in both directions will be closed to
remove the center barrier wall within the paved crossovers on I-77. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 MPH at
all times while the barrier wall is removed.
Traffic will be shifted from I-77 North to I-77
South, creating a two-lane, two-way traffic pattern in that area. There will be
a speed advisory of 35 MPH while driving in the crossover. Traffic will return
to the normal pattern each morning by 6 a.m.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction
information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. For real-time travel information at any time,

Another option is NCDOT Mobile, a phone-friendly version of the NCDOT website.

Android and some newer Blackberry phones.
