Nighttime work is underway on two road projects along Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. Reader James Sanders was out with his camera Wednesday night to document the scene.
The NC DOT is installing a right turn lane from northbound West Catawba Avenue onto Westmoreland Road. And in the Exit 28 area, contractors are starting work on resurfacing the bridge over I-77, as the DOT prepares to shift traffic to a crossover “diverging diamond” pattern. The change is designed to smooth traffic flow through the area.
