  1. Confirmed. Northbound and southbound are all open. Entrance and exit ramps to the Old Beatty Ford Rd overpass are still closed, but the overpass itself is open.
  2. I'm hearing that all lanes were opened on I-85 between Salisbury and Kannapolis yesterday. A red-letter day for sure!
  3. Jersey barriers are gone for both north and southbound on I-85 between Kannapolis and Salisbury. Southbound travel lanes have shifted over to the new lanes while the previous lanes are being marked. Entrance ramps from the new exit were being paved today. It won't be long now!
  4. And so it begins: https://www.salisburypost.com/2019/07/11/i-85-rehab-project-in-rowan-begins-this-wweekend/

  7. The Rock Store used to be a killer coffee shop 15 or so years ago.
  8. Not Charlotte but Salisbury - A film called The 24th will be filming in and around downtown Salisbury this month. More information here: http://salisburync.gov/government/communications/film-productions Relevant Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston_riot_of_1917

  11. Information on new train platforms in Kannapolis and Salisbury published this morning: https://www.salisburypost.com/2019/04/26/second-platforms-at-salisbury-kannapolis-train-stations-in-early-design-phases/
  12. Southbound I-85 opens up to four lanes just north of Exit 63 (Kannapolis). The above picture was taken yesterday, headed southbound on approach to Exit 60 (Dale Earnhardt Blvd).
  13. Northbound I-85 is two lanes past Exit 58 (US29, US601; Kannapolis, Concord) but just recently opened up to the full four lanes halfway between Exits 58 and 60. The highway narrows down back to two lanes as you approach Exit 63 (Kannapolis). I'm also pleased to say that southbound I-85 has opened up to all four lanes through most of Concord/Kannapolis. I didn't pay close enough attention to remember which exit this starts at, but I believe it's somewhere around Exit 63.
  14. All four southbound lanes of I-85 have opened up from Exit 58 (US29, US601; Kannapolis, Concord) southward. Northbound still has lanes three and four coned off.
  15. Try Roby Handyman at https://robyhandyman.com/. Everything under one roof.
  16. Thank you for the update! I've seen new lane markings across all four lanes on various parts in Kannapolis and wondered if we were close.
  17. Thank you for sharing this resource. If you are interested in viewing photography older than 1978, Historic Aerials has photography dating back to 1960 for the Charlotte-Metro region.
  18. I follow a local photographer who recently posted this picture.
  19. A city, rising from the trees, jutting into the blue sky.
  20. You're referencing the Historic Salisbury Foundation OctoberTour. Next even is October 14 & 15, 2017.
  21. Also in the district are Rail Walk Studios & Gallery, Lee St Theater, Waterwork Visual Arts Center, as well as many stand-alone art installations.
  22. No, there's an Arts District that's alive and well here. I'm not too familiar with the area, but I did go take a walk and snap some pictures for you. New Sarum Brewing & Arts District Sign Lost & Found Sorry, I have many more images, I just can't seem to attach them right now.
  23. To add to what's happening in Salisbury, a new microbrewery will be opening soon in the Arts District, one block north of the Lee St Theater. The microbrewery is owned by Morgan Ridge Vineyards and Brewhouse out of Gold Hill, NC. It will operate a wholesale brewery business out of the N Lee St side and a restaurant on the railroad tracks side with indoor and outdoor seating. This is in addition to New Sarum Brewing which is located three blocks south.
  24. I remember getting a speeding ticket from a CMPD officer for going 65 in a 55 on the stretch between US-29 and I-85. This was the evening of the day this segment first opened, and there were no lights whatsoever. I still don't know where he came from, but all of a sudden, there were white and blue lights in my rear-view mirror.
