NCDOT Will Temporarily Close A Section Of Sharon Amity Road In Charlotte This Weekend Tuesday, May 13, 2014

CHARLOTTE – The N.C. Department of Transportation will temporarily close Sharon Amity Road between Independence Boulevard and Pierson Drive from 8 p.m. Friday, May 16 until 6 a.m. Monday, May 19, weather permitting. The closure is part of the $51 million widening project to convert Independence Boulevard to an expressway between Sharon Amity Road and Wallace Lane. 

The closure is necessary for crews to tie in a new waterline on the north end of Sharon Amity Road. The following detours will be posted for motorists:

  • Sharon Amity Road southbound:  Albemarle Road to Independence Boulevard to Wendover Road to Monroe Road back to Sharon Amity Road.
  • Sharon Amity Road northbound: Monroe Road to Wendover Road to Independence Boulevard to Albemarle Road back to Sharon Amity Road.

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
