A single vehicle crash closes 485 ramp in both directions

UPDATE: 485 and Council Place are now back open according to NCDOT.


A single vehicle crash has shutdown Council Place and the 485 inner and outer loop Wednesday evening in Matthew.

A vehicle ran into a utility pole on E. John St causing  major delays with no reports of injuries. The utility pole has snapped and is expected to be replaced. Duke Energy is on the scene but this closure is expected to last until 1:00a.m. once repairs are completed.

Please avoid the area and take alternate route.
