North Carolina Projects

EAST END CONNECTOR

North Carolina projects

This project creates a direct connection between the Durham Freeway and US 70. Improvements to US 70 from Pleasant Drive to north of Holloway Street (NC 98) are also scheduled. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2014. Right-of-way negotiations were recently halted when state engineers realized their current design would create significant traffic visibility problems on the new road. Engineers are reworking their design to flatten some areas and move the road’s route away from existing utility lines.

 

GREENSBORO URBAN LOOP

North Carolina projects

The Urban Loop project is part of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s plan to improve traffic flow within the city. Ideally, the project will help relieve congestion on I-40, particularly in the area where I-40, I-85 and U.S. Routes 29, 70, 220, and 421 all run concurrently. The project involves constructing a four-lane freeway from US 70 to Bryan Boulevard, north of Greensboro. This loop will provide a more direct route for traffic heading from south and east of Greensboro to destinations north and west of the city. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2014.

 

HORSE PEN CREEK ROAD WIDENING – GDOT

The City of Greensboro in North Carolina is currently designing the widening of Horse Pen Creek Road.  The road will be widened from two lanes to four lanes with curb and gutter, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and a raised landscaped median.   The proposed project starts from New Garden Road (SR 2179) to Battleground Avenue (US 220).  According to the City of Greensboro, Right-of-Way Acquisitions are anticipated to start this Fall with construction beginning Spring of 2016.

 

LYNX BLUE LINE EXTENSION

North Carolina projects

This project involves a light rail transit line that extends from Uptown Charlotte, home to the region’s central business district, to the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. The inner segment of the proposed line follows active Norfolk Southern and North Carolina Railroad right-of-way while the outer part follows US 29. The line then diverges from the US 29 right-of-way to proceed onto the campus of UNC Charlotte. The project also involves four park-and-ride lots that would provide approximately 3,000 parking spaces for commuters. UNC Charlotte is particularly excited about the project, hoping it will provide the college community with greater access to Center City Charlotte’s arts, cultural, and athletic events and drive economic development. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2013.

NC HIGHWAY 119 – MEBANE

This project intends to relocate NC 119 in Mebane, NC. They are hoping to relocate it from I-85 to the existing NC 119 in Alamance County. The existing NC 119 is mostly a two-lane roadway routed through the city of Mebane, which causes through traffic to make several turns and stops through the town. NCDOT is hoping this relocation will help with traffic flow.

This project is split into two sections, A and B.   Property Acquisitions for Section A are scheduled to start Fall of 2013 and Section B Property acquisitions in Spring of 2019.

The project is expeted to displace 32 residences and five businesses.  Right of way acquisition and the use of eminent domain is expected to begin soon.

 

US 64 ASHEBORO BYPASS & ZOO CONNECTOR PROJECT

US 64 Asheboro Bypass & Zoo Connector are two new proposed projects in the Asheboro, NC area that, once complete, will improve the traffic flow on the existing US 64 and improve access to the North Carolina Zoo.  The preferred alternative for the US 64 Asheboro Bypass is a proposed 14-mile bypass starting west of the intersection of US 64 and Stutts Road to just east of the intersection of US 64 and Dewey Road.  This proposed Bypass, will be a controlled access, four lane, divided highway.  The proposed Zoo Connector, will be a new 2-lane parkway linking the Bypass with the North Carolina Zoo.  The estimated cost for both Projects is 377.6 million dollars.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2015 with a Let Date of August 19, 2014.

 

WINSTON-SALEM NORTHERN BELTWAY

The Beltway project has been in the works for more than a decade, but is now finally getting underway. The total length of the new road to be constructed is 34.2 miles and runs from U.S. 158 southwest of Winston-Salem to U.S. 311 southeast of the city. The project involves two segments: the western section and the eastern section. The western section runs from U.S. 158 to U.S. 52, while the eastern section runs from U.S. 52 to U.S. 311. The eastern section will become I-74 upon its completion.
