Beginning Monday, August 25th, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will begin a new school year. This will bring an increase in morning and afternoon traffic with school buses in the area. Construction for the Diverging Diamond Interchange at Exit 28 is still underway and only open with one lane of travel in each direction. We encourage drivers to take alternate routes to avoid the construction on Catawba Avenue and allow for extra travel time. We also recommended carpooling or utilizing the CMS bus system to reduce congestion.
Please note that all CMS schools in the area are in session by 9:15AM so if possible, delay your travel times until after schools are in session.
Thank you for your patience during this construction period.
