Road Resurfacing Work

Charlotte, NC— The City of Charlotte will begin resurfacing work on some Charlotte streets over the next few weeks. Resurfacing construction includes milling, adjusting manhole covers and other structures and repaving.  Operating hours/days usually are:

  • Weekdays, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Saturdays and Sundays, 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.

The following collector streets are on the resurfacing list:

  • Barringer Road from Remount Road to Phillips Avenue (work scheduled to start Friday, July 14.)
  • Davis Lake Parkway from West W.T. Harris Road to David Cox Road (work scheduled to start Monday, July 24.)
  • Hucks Road from Old Statesville Road to Sweetbriar Ridge Drive (work scheduled to start Wednesday July 26.)
  • Note: CATS Bus Routes will NOT be affected. For more information about CATS services, visit ridetransit.org.

Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians should expect some congestion and delays during the noted work hours and days.

Funding for resurfacing and repairs comes from gasoline taxes collected by the State of North Carolina.

Weather and unforeseen circumstances occasionally prevent work from being completed as scheduled, and make it unsafe to reopen lanes or streets when planned. When this occurs, City traffic engineers work directly with other City staff and contractors to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and reduce impacts to the traveling public.

Pedestrians walking near work zone areas should be alert, cautious and allow extra traveling time. It is advised they cross at signalized intersections, use pedestrian walk signals where available and abide by detour signage.

Motorists traveling through work zone areas should be alert and extra cautious. Drivers should get in the correct lane well in advance and constantly be on the lookout for vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes as they approach a work zone. Drivers should double their following distance.
