what:Public Meeting Scheduled on N.C. 211 Widening in Raeford on July 28
when:4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 28, 2016
where:West Hoke Middle School, 200 N.C. 211 West, Raeford   
details:The public is invited to this meeting to comment on a proposed widening of N.C. 211.

The proposed project involves widening approximately 15.4 miles of N.C. 211 from U.S. 15-501 in Aberdeen to east of West Palmer Street and Mockingbird Hill Road in Raeford. It will address traffic congestion, roadway deficiencies and safety.

The project is state funded and is included in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as Project R-5709. N.C. 211 will be widened to a four-lane divided roadway with either a 23-foot, 30-foot or 46-foot grass median. Potential safety improvements may include limiting left-turn movements, adding turn lanes and limiting the number of driveways onto N.C. 211.

The project is in the early planning stages and the design work has not started. The study team is seeking comments from the public, local officials, and resource/regulatory agencies about study area features. The information collected at this meeting will help identify important issues, topics and resources.
