The Hambright Road bridge is scheduled to close tomorrow on July 16 after 10:00 p.m. as part of construction for the new I-77 Express Lanes. Construction crews will remove the existing bridge and construct a new bridge. Construction will last approximately 18 months. No detours are planned for traffic on I-77; however, overnight lane closures and traffic shifts will occur on I-77 during the project period.

During construction, no local traffic will be able to cross over Hambright Road bridge. A permanent detour will be in place for local traffic. Local traffic traveling from west of I-77 will take Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road or Alexanderana Road to Statesville Road to access Hambright Road on the east side of I-77. Local traffic traveling from east of I-77 will take Statesville Road to either Mt. Holly Huntersville Road or Alexanderana Road to access Hambright Road on the west side of I-77. You can learn more about the detour and view maps by visiting this link.

Motorists should allow themselves extra time to reach destinations and pay close attention to speed limit signs and work zone signs.
