NCDOT TO EXTEND CLOSING A SECTION OF MCCOY ROAD IN MECKLENBURG COUNTY
Revised completion date is Feb. 22
The N.C. Department of Transportation will extend the closure of McCoy Road between Beatties Ford Road and Hambright Road in Huntersville through Friday, Feb. 22. The original completion date was Jan. 28.
Crews with Piedmont Natural Gas have been working to replace gas valves, and have encountered delays due to the weather and from working around live transmission lines. A scheduled tie-in was also postponed due to rain and a flooded trench. Work resumed after pumping out the water and making safety checks. Crews will be working six days a week to complete the project safely. Motorists should take Hambright Road around the work area.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
