One of the two westbound lanes which carry traffic over I-77 at Exit 28 will be closed beginning the first week of August to allow crews ample room to complete work on the interchange center median; however, since only one lane of westbound traffic is permitted to move at a time, town and DOT officials do not anticipate significant congestion from the change.
