The night time lane closings at the Interstate 77 interchange (Exit 28) in Cornelius have been pushed back a week due to excessive rainfall and will begin on Monday December 16th, instead of Monday December 9th.
The work is the start of a major rebuilding project being undertaken by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, which will eventually result in Exit 28 becoming a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). Some delays can be anticipated, and motorists using Catawba Avenue in Cornelius are urged to consider alternate routes.
Dec. 9 On Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013 at 6 p.m., Bethel Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir and Acts of Renewal will present “Rediscovering Christmas”.

From pieces about blue collar shepherds, to Mary, and dealing with in-laws, the stories are fresh, fun and speak to the heart. This family friendly evening is great for kids ages 8 and older and childcare will be provided for younger children.
