On April 22nd, the Charlotte Observer had a story out about how the last section of I-485 would be open by “by July 20” without providing a more specific completion estimate. The story did have a quote from a state engineer though stating that “We don’t have the means to push at this point.” So the DOT being DOT today announced that the highway would open on… June 5th. I guess they somehow found a means to push after all.
