Greensboro - The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting later this month regarding a City of Greensboro and NCDOT proposal to re-construct and improve the existing U.S. 29/Reedy Fork Parkway interchange.
The improvements include upgrades to Summit Avenue from Bryan Park Road to the interchange as well as enhancements to Reedy Fork Parkway from Eckerson Road to Summit Avenue including service roads.
The purpose of this project is to provide a set of alternatives that will address the transportation needs in the study area. This includes replacing a structurally deficient bridge over U.S. 29, along with improving the existing U.S. 29/ Reedy Fork Parkway Interchange to meet interstate standards that will accommodate future traffic volumes.
The public meeting will take place on Thursday, April 21 at the Bryan Park Golf and Conference Center located at 6275 Bryan Park Road from 4 to 7 p.m.
Interested citizens may attend at any time during the meeting hours. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and listen to comments regarding the project. Please note that no formal presentation will be made. Citizens will also have the opportunity to submit comments and questions in writing. All written comments and questions should be submitted no later than Thursday, May 5, 2016.

Road, bridge, and other transportation improvement projects like this one are currently 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.
New transportation projects in the state's current 10-year plan are funded through the Strategic Mobility Formula, a new way of more efficiently investing transportation dollars by using a data-driven scoring process along with local input to fund more projects and create more jobs. The new mobility formula was passed into law in 2013 under Governor McCrory's leadership.
