I will be heading to CLT for an international flight scheduled to depart at 6:45pm this coming Sunday (3 Dec.). I've read some of the recent threads regarding traffic around Charlotte. I know this kind of thing can change based on day/time/accidents, etc. Google maps shows the route taking between 1 hour 30 minutes (hwy 85 South all the way) up to 2 hours. I've also read there is a lot of highway construction going on all around Charlotte.
So, I plan to depart Greensboro at 1:15pm. Hoping this will have me inside the airport by 3:30pm.
Can anyone advise if this is as good a route/plan as any? Is construction taking place on hwy 85 around Charlotte? Do they work on Sundays?
Any advice from those familiar with the area would be most appreciated.
