MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. - I-77 Mobility Partners announced Wednesday the toll lanes project will be delayed months.
Officials said the northern section of the project, from just north of Hambright Road to exit 36 in Mooresville, is now scheduled to open within the first quarter of 2019. The entire 26-mile stretch is now slated to open in summer 2019.
“I-77 Mobility Partners set an ambitious goal for itself to open lanes by the end of 2018. In collaboration with Sugar Creek Construction and NCDOT, we have made significant progress to improve this important corridor. We are adjusting our timeline due to factors like expanded project scope and unforeseen weather events,” Javier Tamargo, CEO of I-77 Mobility Partners, said in a news release.
