RALEIGH, NC (AP) — If the weather holds up, motorists will be shifting onto a newly constructed section of Interstate 85 in Davidson County.

The NC Department of Transportation says barriers will go up Friday night to move traffic along a one-quarter-mile section of I-85 North near the NC 150 interchange. Cars will shift from two
existing lanes to the two new lanes.

The traffic shift allows crews to widen and realign I-85 North. Workers will have the space needed to remove asphalt and concrete from existing lanes, grade the land and build the additional new lanes.

The department also plans to move all traffic on I-85 North from Exit 81 in Rowan County to just north of the NC 150 interchange in Davidson County onto the two newly constructed lanes by early May.
