Board of Transportation Approves 24 Safety Projects

Raleigh - The McCrory Administration has approved more than $2.6 million to improve pedestrian access and safety in 16 counties across the state. The money will fund 24 small construction and contingency projects along state roads, sidewalks and pathways.

The projects, some of which were the result of cooperative local and state government partnerships, were approved by the Board of Transportation during its May meeting.

The projects include:

  • The construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Baywood Road and Murphy Road in the Town of Eastover in Cumberland County
  • Pedestrian improvements to Cloverdale Avenue and Miller Street in Winston-Salem
  • The installation of a multi-use path along Sloop Point Road and Country Club Road in Pender County
  • Drainage improvements on North Main Street (U.S. 29) between Henderson Street and Steel Street in Salisbury
  • The installation of pedestrian signals and median modifications, which will provide a pedestrian refuge at Slope Street and U.S. 19 in Bryson City in Swain County
  • Drainage improvements to West Palmer Street in the Town of Franklin in Macon County
  • The construction of sidewalks along state roads in Hertford, Martin and Madison counties
  • Traffic signal improvements to roads in Haywood, Henderson, Jackson and Swain counties
  • Ditch, culvert and roadside improvements in Macon, Northampton, New Hanover, Sampson, Cumberland and Union counties

Improvement projects like these are underway across the state as part of Governor McCrory's 25-Year Transportation Vision to enhance travel safety and to better connect North Carolinians to jobs, education, healthcare and recreation opportunities.
