NCDOT to Shift Interstate 77 Traffic in Mooresville Overnight Starting May 1 Friday, April 27, 2012

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 part of the Brawley School Road widening project.

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 will create an interchange between I-77 and Brawley School Road.

The inside travel lanes in both directions will be closed to install the crossover on I-77.  The speed limit will be reduced to 55 miles per hour at all times while the barrier wall is removed.

Once that work is complete, traffic will be shifted from I-77 South to I-77 North, 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.
