The entrance ramp from E. Broad St. onto I-77 northbound will be closed from May 23 to June 1 because of work along the banking near the ramp. 

Work will only take place weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. No work will take place on the weekend or on Memorial Day, and the ramp will be open during those times. 

The ramp closures are necessary because the slope along the creek bank next to I-77 has been eroding. Crews will stabilize the slope using stone to fill in the area. 

Message boards will be located on East Broad Street to provide motorists advance notice of the closure. A daytime detour route from East Broad Street to I-77 North will be set up. Motorists will get on I-77 South to Exit 49B (Salisbury Road) back to I-77 North.

Plan ahead and allow plenty of time to reach their destinations safely.

There’s no need to fear the voices you might hear coming from the Fourth Creek Burying Ground in downtown Statesville on Saturday, May 12.
That’s the weekend of the Twilight Cemetery Tours and the voices are characters from the past sharing bits and pieces of their own stories and the cemetery’s history.
Visitors will walk back in time as history comes alive through the tales of costumed actors and actresses portraying people who are buried in the historic cemetery or who were a part of its history.  A guide will lead groups through the cemetery to meet these characters and look at the fascinating tombstones.
The Twilight Cemetery Tour is sponsored by the Iredell Arts Council, City of Statesville, Theater! Statesville, Downtown Statesville Development Corporation and First Presbyterian Church.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling 704-873-6100.  Reservations are required for tours starting at 3 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 5 p.m., 5:45 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
