South Blvd exit ramp to I-277 John Belk Freeway
"SOUTHEND" – heading towards downtown from SOUTH BLVD. One lane exit ramp. This is a HOT SPOT for booze it or loose it campaigns and random checkpoints. Roadblocks often held during drinking holidays (Cinco de Mayo, St. Pattys day, etc..). Two checkpoints the past three years on Cinco De Mayo. They’ve done some construction on this part over the past year due to the NASCAR hall of fame, but I’ve read on Charlotte.com of at least two checkpoints within the past year here. High % of local pubs/bars in this area. Tryon street downtown is also a place to avoid.
