West Leg of I-485 to Open Soon After August 24

(July 18, 2004) Dianne Whitacre, The Charlotte Observer's Dr. Traffic, reports that the new
8-mile section of I-485 from Arrowood Road to I-85 should open shortly after an opening ceremony is held on August 24. The new section will open either immediately after the ceremony or the next morning, depending on when it is ready. The North Carolina Department of Transportation plans to open the whole section to I-85 at once. (They previously had planned to open the section from Arrowood Road to Wilkinson Boulevard a few weeks before opening the big interchange at I-85.)

Other parts of Mecklenburg County have experienced major changes when sections of I-485 have opened through them. Steele Creek is experiencing major changes already and should expect more after August 25.
