Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

Recommended Posts


Back up to Mooresville on I-77 and the express lanes are looking more and more done.  WSOCTV the other night said it would be completely complete by Oct. 31 2019 but sections will open sooner like these north of I-485. New ramp to 77 express lanes at Hambright Rd is also shown (last photo)  Like the new sound walls finally for 77 north of I-485.

The first picture had me scared for a second.

Yes that truck was being towed but with the wrong way crashes around here I would have had to go left on barrel through the toll lanes.

I travel a lot around the USA and I don't remember many states that have signs this big not even in Texas!  I like them I just worry how they are attached and if we have gale force winds I would be concerned.

I don't think anyone has updated this recently, so here's my chance to contribute. I went to pick up my NC EZ Pass yesterday and the clerk told me the northern part of the toll lanes opens the first week of April. I'm not excited about them opening, but I'll be glad the construction is over. And, I-77 Mobility can't go bankrupt from lack of use until they open right?

And if you are wondering...I'll have a sticker just in case I ever do have to use the toll lanes since it's cheaper, but I don't plan on that being more than once every 6 mos or so.

^^^ Sounds good.  I have the sticker too it is free works in GA FL as well as NC and the Monroe Bypass.  I will occasionally use it as well but if there is a massive back up I will hop on for sure.

Pretty pumped about the new Weddington @ 485 interchange. It’ll knock at least ten minutes off my commute.

Some talk about rt 521 going to 6 lanes:

The Lancaster news also has a couple articles on future development near Indian land In the business news section 

521 in Meck County will also be widened to 6 lanes. The Lancaster portion will probably have to be 8 lanes or limited access with frontage roads some day unless they can find a way to build additional road network in the area.
