Traffic shift scheduled for U.S. 29 in Concord
CONCORD, NC (via NCDOT) – Contract crews for the N.C. Department of Transportation will install lane closures on Tuesday, June 19, on U.S. 29 North in Concord where two bridges over the Rocky River are being replaced.
To safely set the seven bridge girders, crews will reduce U.S. 29 North traffic to one lane, just north of Bruton Smith Boulevard. However, rolling road blocks will be used on the single lane, lasting up to five minutes each time.
The lane reductions are scheduled to start at 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 19, concluding before the afternoon commute.
Message boards will be installed on U.S. 29 North approaching Bruton Smith Boulevard to alert motorists of the work ahead. To avoid delays, drivers could take Bruton Smith Boulevard to I-85 as an alternate route.
Motorists are encouraged to pay attention when approaching the work when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit, follow posted detours, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely
