Road Work On Independence Blvd Set To Continue

CHARLOTTE, NC– A plan to widen Independence Boulevard is back on track in East Charlotte.

Workers with the lane construction corporation restarted work on the project today.

Devere Construction abandoned the 50 million dollar job back in January, claiming the state withheld claims and contract balances.

Businesses in the area say finishing the project will be a big boost for them.

“A lot of our customers, they usually have to go around or have trouble finding , actually getting into our parking lot. So once that’s free, its going to bring more new customers.”

Crews will work on sidewalks and paving this week.
