Costly toll-lanes project on Charlotte, NC loop road delayed

Officials say work on a $346 million toll-lanes project on an interstate loop road around North Carolina’s biggest city is running well behind schedule.

State highway officials said during a recent public meeting of a North Carolina Turnpike Authority committee that the opening of those lanes on I-485, originally planned for fall of 2022, now faces a delay of up to two years, the Charlotte Observer reported.
