NASCAR races at CMS to bring extra traffic in the area

CHARLOTTE, NC – Thousands of race fans will be populating the roadways in northeast Mecklenburg County and southwest Cabarrus County in the coming days as NASCAR events kick off Friday, Sept. 28, at Charlotte Motor Speedway, capped by the Bank of America ROVAL 400 on Sunday, Sept. 30. The N.C. Department of Transportation and local agencies are preparing for increased traffic on I-85, U.S. 29, N.C. 49 and Bruton Smith Boulevard.

NCDOT will use overhead message signs and portable message signs to alert motorists of potential problem areas and suggested alternate routes around incidents and congestion. Bruton Smith Boulevard often has the most traffic volume because mobile direction services and GPS devices typically direct users to this route. Because of this, NCDOT encourages motorists to use U.S. 29 to access the speedway whenever possible.

The following are suggested routes for motorists heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway:

  • From South Carolina: Take I-77 North to the I-485 outer loop (Exit 1B) to U.S. 29 North (Exit 32) or N.C. 49 North (Exit 33);
  • From Virginia: Take I-77 South to the I-485 Inner Loop (Exit 19A) to U.S. 29 North (Exit 32) or N.C. 49 North (Exit 33);
  • From west of Charlotte: Take I-85 North to I-485 (Exit 30) and follow I-485 Inner to U.S. 29 North. An alternate route is I-85 North to Poplar Tent Road (Exit 52) to Pitts School Road to U.S. 29 South;
  • From east of Charlotte: Take the I-485 outer loop to U.S. 29 North (Exit 32) or N.C. 49 North (Exit 33); and
  • From north of Charlotte: Take George W. Liles Parkway (Exit 54) to U.S. 29 South.

Commuters who use I-85 through this area should adjust driving time or, if possible, use an alternate route, especially during the weekend.

Visitors to Concord Mills Mall are encouraged to take I-485 to Mallard Creek Road (Exit 28), then head north to the mall, taking a right at the first or second traffic signal. This alternate route will ease congestion at the mall entrance from I-85.

After race events, all traffic will be directed away from the speedway, so race attendees should plan accordingly.
