CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A section of Rea Road will be closed all of Tuesday afternoon and evening, and well into the night Tuesday.
The Charlotte-Mecklenbury Utilities Department, CMUD, says the 5100 block of Rea Road is shut down due to emergency sewer main repairs.
The 5100 block is between Pineville-Matthews Road, Highway 51, and the Colony Road/Rea Road split.
Authorities say detours are in place, and if possible, motorists should avoid the area.
The roadway is expected to reopen by 11 p.m. Tuesday.
