The N.C. Department of Transportation has begun a long-anticipated patching and repaving project on N.C. 115 through north Mecklenburg County. The work will run from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly and could mean lane closures, according to travel alerts from the town of Cornelius and DOT.
The work began this week on North Main Street in Davidson. In Cornelius, it was scheduled to begin Tuesday night at the Davidson-Cornelius line, on N.C. 115 at Potts Street. The project could last 4 to 5 weeks, depending on the weather, and will repave the entire length of Main Street/NC 115. During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel.
The DOT will be resurfacing N.C. 115 between the Iredell County line in Davidson and Washam-Potts Road, according to an alert from the town of Davidson.
Work will take place weekday and weekend nights from 8 PM to 6 AM, and parking on Hwy 115 will be restricted during that time.
In Davidson, the work will not affect angled on-street parking downtown. That part of the road will not be resurfaced, according to the Town of Davidson.
Residents are invited to call the DOT at 704-847-5006 with any questions or concerns.
