CHARLOTTE -The N.C. Department of Transportation will host a public meeting on Thursday, Nov. 13, to provide updates on a proposed project to convert a section of U.S. 74 to a superstreet configuration between Indian Trail-Fairview Road and Wesley Chapel Stouts Road/Sardis Church Road in Indian Trail.
The proposed project would convert four full-movement, signalized intersections to a superstreet configuration. This design would permit traffic on U.S. 74 to turn left onto side streets. Traffic approaching from side streets would not be permitted to proceed straight across or turn left directly onto U.S. 74, but would turn right and make a U-turn to head in the opposite direction. The superstreet decreases the potential for accidents by reducing the number of conflict points at each intersection. This concept also provides a reliable alternative along heavily-traveled roads with significant commercial and residential development.
The public meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Indian Trail Civic Building, at 100 Navajo Trail in Indian Trail. NCDOT representatives will be available during the informal, open-house style setting to provide information, answer questions and collect comments regarding the proposed project. Citizens are welcome to attend at any time during the meeting hours, as there will not be a formal presentation. Comments on the proposed project can be submitted until Dec.1.
For more information about the project, contact Sean Epperson, Division 10 Traffic Engineer at (704) 983-4400 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
