I-485 Weddington Road Interchange
Project # R-0211EC
Type: Interchange construction
Affected Counties: Mecklenburg
Estimated Cost: $20,000,000 (estimated)
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will construct an interchange at Weddington Road (SR 3468) and I-485 between exits 52 and 57 in Matthews.
Part of the Charlotte Southern Outer Loop extending from west of I-77 to US 74, the Weddington Road interchange will be designed as a folded-diamond style interchange with all four ramps located on the eastern side of the existing bridge over I-485. The westbound (inner) ramps are proposed to intersect Weddington Road directly opposite Plantation Road. The eastbound (outer) ramps are proposed to intersect Weddington Road directly opposite Plantation Center Drive.
