Those who regularly battle traffic on the southern stretch of I-485 have some good news. The interstate will grow to three lanes in each direction by the end of 2015. That’s a full year ahead of schedule.
The southern section of I-485 from I-77 to Rea Road can be a headache at rush hour. Tim Timmerman knows it well since he lives nearby.
“It’s bumper to bumper and your fair share of bumper jumpers and little accidents and everything,” says Timmerman.
