HOPE MILLS – People can learn more this month on a proposal to widen two increasingly congested roads off North Main Street in the heart of Hope Mills.
The Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, a group that helps guide transportation projects, requested the N.C. Department of Transportation widen sections of Rockfish and Golfview roads branching from North Main Street. The town of Hope Mills supports the need to improve these two roads, which serve, among others uses, the police and fire departments, Town Hall, Municipal Park, a public library and a recreation center.
The proposal is to widen both roads into four lanes with a raised median, which would improve safety and traffic flow. The section of Rockfish Road is between Golfview Road and North Main Street, which is also N.C. 59. The section of Golfview Road is between Rockfish Road and North Main Street.
More information on the project will be posted as it becomes available on the NCDOT Public Meetings website.
The open house will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Rockfish Elementary School, 5763 Rockfish Road. The public may attend at any time during the meeting hours, as no formal presentation will be made.
At the meeting there will be maps of the proposed plans, as well as project team members to answer questions and receive feedback. The department will consider the comments when finalize the design. People may submit comments by March 15.
More information will be posted as it becomes available on this NCDOT page.
