According to Department of Transportation officials, the seemingly endless construction on the final stretch of Interstate 485 is on schedule.

The project has been running for months and causing countless traffic complications and backups.

The project includes connecting I-485 to I-85, and widening I-85 near Concord Mills.

The busy stretch of highway sees as many as 120,000 drivers a day.

The project manager claims that the last stretch of the loop should be finished by December 2014, a date long awaited by many Charlotte drivers.

Studies by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration reveal that one in every ten construction site workers are injured every year.  Roadway work zones are hazardous for workers and motorists.  So it’s important for motorists to always obey work-zone speed limits and stay especially alert for workers and hazards.  If you are injured in a serious motor-vehicle accident, call trusted the Accident Attorneys of Reeves, Aiken, and Hightower at 704-499-9000 or 877-374-5999 toll-free.  You can speak directly with one of our attorneys and find out how to work out a successful recovery plan for you and your loved ones.
