Ramp, lane closures on I-85 in Cabarrus County

Ramps and lanes will be closed temporarily on I-85 in Cabarrus County Tuesday night. 

The closures come as part of the widening project between exits 55 and 63. Beginning at 9:00 p.m., three northbound lanes will be closed between mile markers 54 and 55 so crews can relocate signs and add pavement markers. 

At midnight, the entrance ramp from George Liles Parkway to  I-85 North will be closed as well as the northbound exit and entrance ramps at N.C. 73. 

NCDOT officials say all ramps should be reopened by 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Motorists are asked to use caution when traveling through these areas.
