Repair work will close the N.C. 86 bridge over I-85 (Exit 165) at night for a week or more, starting Tuesday, Oct. 2, the state Department of Transportation said.

The bridge will be closed between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night for milling, paving and bridge deck slab repairs.  The work is expected to take at least 7 to 10 nights.

Detours will be marked, directing northbound drivers on N.C. 86 to go north on I-85 to Exit 170 and return to Exit 185.  Southbound drivers on N.C. 86 will be detoured via Old N.C. 86 (Exit 164).
