ASH – The N.C. Department of Transportation will host a public meeting in Brunswick County next week concerning a proposal to improve the intersection at U.S. 17 and N.C. 904.
NCDOT proposes a reduced conflict intersection (RCI) at that location. An RCI is designed to reduce potential collisions for vehicles and pedestrians by allowing drivers from a side road to only turn right. To go the other direction, or cross the highway, drivers would pull into a dedicated lane to make a U-turn and then go straight or turn right at the intersection.
Maps of the proposal area can be found at the NCDOT Public Meetings website.
The public meeting will be held July 8 from 5 – 7 p.m. at Jessie Mae Monroe Elementary School in Ash. Interested residents can drop in any time during the meeting to learn more about the proposal, have questions answered and talk with NCDOT representatives. There will not be a formal presentation.
Written comments can also be submitted by phone, email or mail and will be accepted through July 22.
