    Lawsuits for what? It's a construction area where the road is literally being reconstructed? People not being able to drive and crashing does not warrant a lawsuit against the state or the dot.

    Travis is right, that area of I-85 has been under construction for quite a while.

    DOT really screwed that place up. Law suits to follow.
