RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation will
close lanes and shift traffic from Interstate 77 South to I-77 North between
exits 33 and 36 in Mooresville overnight next week to set bridge girders as

Contractor W.C. English Inc. will set girders over I-77
South each evening between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. beginning Tuesday, May 1 through Friday,
May 4, weather permitting. The work is part of the new bridge construction that

of 35 mph while driving in the crossover. Traffic will return to the normal pattern
each morning by 6 a.m.
