CHARLOTTE – A section of Hood Road in Charlotte will remain closed while the N.C. Department of Transportation continues a project to replace the bridge over Reedy Creek. A subcontractor ran into delays getting to the work site, requiring the completion date to be extended from Nov. 26 to the end of next month.
Dane Construction of Mooresville started the $602,000 project July 30, which includes removing the existing bridge and substructure, building up the shoulders on the approaches to the bridge, and installing guardrail.
Motorists should continue to follow a posted detour from Hood Road to Plaza Road Extension to Harris Boulevard to Robinson Church Road back to Hood Road.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
