I-77 Mobility Partners: Road Construction Affecting Davidson

I-77 Mobility Partners Image

Road Construction Affecting Davidson The state is embarking on a road construction project that will affect Davidson: the I-77 managed lanes project. Town of Davidson staff meets regularly with developer I-77 Mobility Partners, general contractor Sugar Creek Construction, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to mitigate impacts as much as possible. Crews installed concrete safety barriers near the median in both directions and construction activities have begun in the median. Construction of the I-77 managed lanes will occur in the median of I-77 with minimal disruption to commuters. I-77 Mobility Partners have notified us that occasional lane closures will only take place in overnight hours. However, with day and night activity in the work zone, motorists should drive safely, avoid cell phone usage and other distractions, stay alert at all times, and plan ahead. We want our Davidson citizens to be safe throughout this process. We encourage citizens to visit I-77 Mobility Partners’ website at: http://www.i77express.com/ We encourage citizens to sign up for their email updates to stay informed of their project at: http://www.i77express.com/newsroom/newsletter-e-alerts/



*** traffic advisory ***


July 20, 2018

Please proceed with caution through the construction at Exit 30 as the team from I-77 Mobility Partners/Sugar Creek Construction makes changes to the traffic pattern to get ready to make the new roundabout operational this weekend.



Overnight Detours on I-77 at Exit 30 and Griffith Street

Charlotte, N.C. (March 2, 2018) – Beginning Monday, February 26, construction crews will begin placing beams on the second half of the new Griffith Street bridge at Exit 30 in Davidson, weather permitting. The work will take place overnight during which time detours will be in place on I-77 and Griffith street as traffic will not be able to pass under, nor cross over the bridge during this work.

Motorists on I-77 will be routed onto the Exit 30 exit ramps and down the entrance ramps back onto I-77. Nightly detours will continue to take place for the next two weeks approximately.

 

Local traffic travelling from west of I-77 will take I-77 southbound to Exit 28 Catawba Avenue to I-77 northbound to access Exit 30 Griffith Street on the east side. Local traffic travelling from east of I-77 will take I-77 northbound to Exit 31 Langtree Road to I-77 southbound to access Exit 30 Griffith Street on the west side.

See specific dates, times and detour maps below.

Sugar Creek Construction and I-77 Mobility Partners are coordinating with the town of Davidson and area emergency responders to ensure efficient response during these detours. Once the new Exit 30 Griffith Street bridge is completed, it will have improved pedestrian access with the addition of bike lanes and sidewalks. Motorists are encouraged to pay attention when approaching the work zone, obey the posted speed limit and work zone signs, and allow extra time to reach their destinations safely.

We encourage people to sign up to receive lane closure and traffic advisory information, and the latest information on the project.

Once the project is complete, dedicated express lanes will run adjacent to the existing general purpose lanes. The number of general purpose lanes will remain the same as today. Drivers will have the choice of using the express lanes to avoid travel delays, the general purpose lanes or a combination of both. Vehicles with three or more occupants (including the driver) and equipped with a transponder may use the express lanes for free. The 26-mile project is scheduled to open in 2018.
