HENDERSON – A project aimed at improving mobility and reducing congestion on Dabney Drive between Coble Boulevard and U.S. 158 Business in Vance County will be the subject of a public meeting in Henderson on Thursday.
The N.C. Department of Transportation has developed two concepts that will be discussed at the meeting. The first would make Dabney Drive one-way eastbound and Corbitt Road one-way westbound, with an option for a roundabout at South Garnett Street. The second concept would upgrade Dabney Drive to a four-lane, median-divided roadway.
Additional information, including a maps of the proposals, can be found on the NCDOT public meetings website .
Area residents who want to learn more about the project, ask questions and comment on the plans can attend the meeting from 4-7 p.m. at E.M. Rollins Elementary School, 1600 South Garnett Street. The public may attend at any time as no formal presentation will be made. Comments will be considered as the project develops. It is scheduled to begin construction in 2022.
If someone is unable to attend the meeting, they can still offer comments via email, phone or at NCDOT's public input portal by July 11. Those email and phone comments can be directed to Brett Lackey, NCDOT project manager, at email@example.com or 919-424-4535.
