North Carolina voters will likely head to the polls three times in 2016.

The March 15 primary is quickly approaching and North Carolina lawmakers have been in session this week redrawing Congressional maps after a federal court ruled the 2011 renderings were unconstitutional.

The state House and Senate have now approved new Congressional districts, which they say comply with the law. Opponents of the new districts say that the new drawings are still illegal because they pack black voters into certain districts.

Leaders in the North Carolina legislature have asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of the federal court mandate, but the nation’s high court has yet to respond.

Friday was the deadline issued by the federal court for new districts to be approved.

Since district maps do not have to be approved by Governor Pat McCrory, the new renderings became law upon the approval from both the House and the Senate.

The new districts have altered the shape and range of nearly all of North Carolina’s 13 districts, leaving those running for the U.S. House of Representatives scrambling.

The March 15 primary will be held and voters will cast their ballots in the party races for President, Senate, Governor and local elections.

Voters will be asked to go back to the polls in the Congressional primary on June 7, if a stay is not granted.

If a stay is not issued by the March 15 primary, a second filing period will be opened to file for the U.S. House of Representatives. If the U.S. Supreme Court issues a stay, all races will be held during the March 15 primary.

Eastbound I-40 was closed at US-501 (MM 270) in Chapel Hill on Friday afternoon.  The closure was due to a serious accident.

The left two lanes were soon opened and traffic was able to get by while work continued in the right lane and the right shoulder.

Authorities say to expect delays until 6:30 on Friday evening.

An alternative route:  Motorists coming from I-85 North/I-40 East should stay on I-85 North, then take the NC-147 (Durham Freeway) exit to NC-147 South. NC-147 South will re-access I-40 East.

Traffic was at a standstill going both directions near US 15-501 on I-40.  Eastbound traffic was backed up to New Hope Church Road (MM 263), seven miles from the accident.

Come Saturday, UNC will look to do something they haven’t done all season — beat a ranked ACC team.

The Tar Heels take on No. 11 Miami, searching for the win that was so close Wednesday night.

Down one, with only seconds to play, Joel Berry drove to the basket and missed the chance to win the game. It was UNC’s fourth consecutive loss to Duke.

“It’s a wonderful rivalry to be involved in,” head coach Roy Williams said after the game Wednesday. “But I’m tired of being just involved. We need to play better.”

Forward Brice Johnson said it would take some time before he got over the loss to Duke, but time is about to run out as guard Sheldon McClellan come to Chapel Hill.

McClelland is the most efficient offensive player in the country among players used in 20 percent of possessions and will be a handful for a UNC team that had trouble containing Duke’s Grayson Allen and Brandon Ingram on the perimeter.

He is averaging 16.1 points per game, while shooting over 50 percent from the field, nearly 40 percent from three and 87 percent from the free throw line.

“You’ve got to just sit down and guard your man,” Johnson said in the locker room after the Duke game. “They didn’t shoot very well but at the same time whenever they needed a basket they got it. We’ve got to be able to sit down and guard our man and not allow them to do that.”

Tipoff is set for 1:00 p.m. Saturday. Make sure to tune into WCHL for UNC Health Care’s Countdown to Tipoff at 11:30 for all of your pre-game coverage.

A Mecklenburg County judge has dismissed a lawsuit in which two former University of North Carolina athletes alleged the school failed to provide them and other athletes a quality education by directing them toward sham classes.

Superior Court Judge Richard Ervin cited arguments by attorneys representing UNC that said both the statute of limitations and sovereign immunity prevented former football player James Arnold and former basketball player Leah Metcalf from pursuing their case.

Cyrus Mehri, an attorney for the athletes, said he would take the case next to the N.C. Court of Appeals. He said the case not only impacts UNC athletes, but college athletes nationwide.

UNC spokesman Rick White said the school was pleased with Ervin’s decision. He said the school’s focus is a world-class education for everyone.
