Representatives from the Lake Norman Transportation Commission and the citizens group Widen I-77 made their cases Friday for and against plans to widen I-77 using High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes at a forum at the Lake Norman Chamber in Cornelius. About 45 business owners, elected officials and area residents showed up for the Focus Friday event.
Representatives from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will hold a public information session about the contested I-77 high occupancy toll (HOT) lane project on Wednesday from 2:30 to 4pm at Huntersville Town Hall.

Cornelius and Davidson emergency units responded to a report of a wreck on I-77 southbound Thursday morning that brought traffic to a standstill at one point.
The wreck, which dispatchers initially reported as a rollover, happened around 9am.
One of the two lanes reopened around 9:15am, according to a radio report from Cornelius units on the scene.
It wasn’t known if anyone was hurt in the wreck. No further information was immediately available.
A passerby told us he saw two cars, a Mercedes that appeared to be totaled and a minivan. He said there did not appear to be any serious injuries.
Firefighters were busy Thursday morning. Earlier, both Cornelius and Davidson units were called to Davidson College’s Patterson Court for a report of smoke in a fraternity house.
Meanwhile, another wreck with injuries, involving a truck and a car, closed NC 150 in Mooresville Thursday morning. See more on the Mooresville Tribune website.
