BURLINGTON – A virtual public meeting is scheduled for this week, followed by a two-week public comment period for proposed improvements to N.C. 62 in Burlington.
Two alternatives are being considered for widening N.C. 62 between Ramada Road and U.S. 70. The two options differ primarily between Trail Six and Lacy Street, where one option calls for a two-lane, median-divided design, and the other a three-lane pattern that includes a center turn lane. The project also includes improving intersections and adding sidewalks and a multi-use path.
The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow, help relieve congestion, and support regional mobility and accessibility. Once complete, it also would better accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians and enhance safety for all roadway users. Project details, including maps, can be found on the NCDOT project web page at https://www.ncdot.gov/projects/nc-62-widening/Pages/default.aspx.
The virtual public meeting is set for 6 p.m. on March 24. Interested residents can join the meeting online at https://meet.goto.com/815532381 or call 1-646-749-3122 and use code 815-532-381 to join by phone.
