Hi Folks!

We'll be traveling this Sunday to VA. Any suggestions on how to go around or beat that nasty backup there up in Concord/Speedway on I-85?

Thanks so much!

Hi!

We'll be leaving from Charlotte/Pineville area. We usually take I-85 up to South Hill, Va, and go on 58 E from there. There's always that problem at the Speedway...grrrr!

Is there any event this Sunday? Why would it be backed up?

You could get onto 49N in the University area and take it all the way to Concord and jump back on 85.

Does 485 kick you back out on 85 past the speedway yet?

Are you going between 12-7? Then yes it will be busy with shoppers. Try the 49 route, or just stay in the left lane. I bet it won't be as bad as rush hour.

Mall traffic, will back it up, your best bet will be 485 to 29N past the speedway look for Concord Farms RD (make left), take to Weddington Rd (make Right) take to George Liles AKA Kannapolis Parkway Merge onto Rt 85 at exit 54.

Good Luck and have a safe trip.
