ROAD REPAIR: Lane Closed on Independence Blvd

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The right lane of U.S. 74 westbound near I-277 will remain closed until 4 p.m. on Friday, as crews address a water main leak.

On Wednesday night, the N.C. Department of Transportation closed the right lane of U.S. 74/Independence Boulevard westbound just prior to I-277 so crews could address pavement issues.

Water has been collecting on this stretch of highway, and there are concerns that it will freeze and create hazardous driving conditions.

NCDOT says they have been working with Charlotte Water to determine a cause of the seeping water.

WCCB will provide updates.
