If you’re headed to the city, here’s what you need to know!
It’s about to be a very busy weekend in uptown Charlotte, with people filing in for NBA All Star Weekend.
Because of the high volume of pedestrians around uptown, there are a few roads that will be closed that you should know about.
Roads surrounding the Spectrum Center in uptown Charlotte are already being blocked off. Police had Trade Street closed at College Street, so only pedestrians could access that area around the Spectrum Center.
The following streets near the Spectrum Center will be closed:
- East Fifth Street
- Fourth Street
- Caldwell Street
- Brevard Street
- East Trade Street
