Beginning 7:00 a.m., Monday, April 18, the northbound right two lanes of Rama Road approaching the Monroe Road intersection will be closed to traffic. While one northbound lane will remain open, motorists should expect congestion and delays. Plan accordingly. The lane closures will continue until 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 13. (Updated 5/3/16)
Several weeks ago, MoRA told you about the utility relocation work that was delaying the opening of Idlewild Rd at Independence. You may have noticed new grading on the Meridian side of the intersection. Work on the pump station at that corner has necessitated this lane closure. It should be noted that this is just part of the utility work that will be required.
For additional information about this closure, contact Scott Williams, Charlotte Water Construction Inspector at 704-995-7490, or Bill Greentaner, CDOT Project Manager, at 704-336-7308.
A contract for the larger intersection project is being finalized and includes ample opportunity for community input. That project could include sidewalks, bike lanes and more. MoRA will notify you of all community meetings as well as any additional ways to give your input as that planning begins.
