nm..I live under a rock
te 85 North in Cabarrus County is reopen after being closed for hours Tuesday because of a crash involving a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck.The crash happened just before noon near Poplar Tent Road. The tractor-trailer involved in the crash was carrying an 80,000-pound concrete slab that loosened and fell onto the roadway, the North Carolina Department of Transportation said.

I see you amended your OP, but an even better question to ask is why during the course of this construction they've made the lanes so tight and left the pavement scoured out where they scratched out the original lane lines. It's a difficult and rough drive, and the scours tend to "toss" your car in various directions. This is made even more difficult in heavy traffic under normal highway speeds.

Also, who's the genius at the DOT who on I-85 south from Concord Mills Boulevard to past the I-485 exit decided to reduce it from four to two lanes when the pavement on all lanes is in perfect condition and they aren't doing any work on the closed lanes? It's making what is usually a free-and-clear morning commute a nightmare for no apparent reason.
