Emergency Water Line Repairs Will Close Section Of Kannapolis Highway In Concord Tonight

CONCORD, NC — Kannapolis Highway (29A) will be closed in both directions tonight at I-85 for emergency water line repairs.

Officials with the City of Concord Water Resources say the closer will begin at roughly 7pm and last throughout the evening. Customers in the area of Kannapolis Highway and Winecoff School Road north of I-85 may lose service during that time.

Traffic will be detoured using Winecoff School Road, Davidson Highway (NC 73), and Central Drive NW.

Officials say the recent freezing temperatures caused a leak in the line, and crews are acting quickly to prevent any potentially hazardous road conditions overnight.

Drivers are asked to use caution in the area and follow posted detour routes.
