CONCORD – The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting next week to present information about a project to improve a section of N.C. 73 between Davidson-Concord Road in Mecklenburg County and U.S. 29 in Cabarrus County.
The project’s aim is to increase mobility and improve traffic operations in the corridor, reduce congestion at intersections, and provide accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists. Recommendations to improve the roadway are included in comprehensive transportation plans developed by the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization and Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization.
The purpose of next week’s meeting is to provide an update on the design and proposed improvements within the corridor, including intersection treatments.
The meeting is set from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27 at Connect Christian Church, 3101 Davidson Highway in Concord. People can drop in at any time to view design maps and speak with project team members.
Project information and materials can also be viewed online as they become available at the project’s website.
Comments can also be submitted by phone, email or mail through February 10. Contact Theresa Ellerby, NCDOT Project Manager, for more information at 919-707-6020. All comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops.
