Press Release

The North Carolina Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings next week to present information about a project to improve about ten miles of Interstate 85 from NC 273 in Mount Holly to US 321 in Gastonia.

The project’s aim is to address existing and future congestion in the corridor and improve traffic flow. Proposed improvements include widening the roadway from six to eight lanes, relocating and/or replacing roadway and railroad overpasses, and upgrading interchanges.

Minor improvements are also proposed for a quarter-mile section of NC 7 between I-85 and US 29/74 and to the NC 7 and US 29/74 intersection in Belmont.

People may attend either meeting:

  • Tuesday, May 21st  in the Wheeler Center/Gym at Belmont-Abbey College, 100 Belmont – Mount Holly Road
  • Wednesday, May 22nd at the Gastonia Conference Center, 145 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Way

Both informal drop-in meetings will be held from 4 to 7 PM and people can drop in at any time to view design maps and speak with project team members. The same information will be presented at both meetings.

Project information and materials can also be viewed online as they become available at the project’s website.

Comments can also be submitted by phone, email or mail through June 6th to Nora McCann, NCDOT Project Manager, at 919-707-6043 or All comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops.

NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Samantha Borges at 919-707-6115 or as early as possible so arrangements can be made.
