The Howell Mill Road project is a great example of how state and local governments work together to help North Carolina residents have better and safer access to job, health care, education and recreation opportunities. This project ties in a greenway, provides a safer route for trucks in and out of Evergreen Packaging and is a beautiful representation of Governor McCrory's "Art That Moves You." Initiative.

Members of the media who plan on attending should respond to David Uchiyama at duchiyama@ncdot.gov or at 828-231-2056 prior to the event. Parking is available on Howell Mill Road.
