ROBBINSVILLE – The N.C. Department of Transportation invites the public to provide input on a proposed project to remove an old bridge from a circular road in Graham County.
The informal, drop-in meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Robbinsville Elementary School, 54 Moose Branch Road in Robbinsville. With no formal presentation, the public may participate in the meeting at any time.
NCDOT is proposing the removal of a bridge located in the middle of Mill Creek Road — a loop road — that has access to Tallulah Road at both ends. The current bridge has reached the end of its service. NCDOT will construct turnarounds on both sides of the bridge.
Right-of-way acquisition is scheduled to start in fiscal year 2023 with construction beginning one year later.
People may submit comments at the meeting, by mail to Zach Shuler, NCDOT Division 14, 345 Toot Hollow Road, Bryson City, NC 28713 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments may be submitted through Oct. 10.
NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled people who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Alecia Hardy, Environmental Analysis Unit, at 1598 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1598, 919-978-1986 or email@example.com as early as possible so arrangements can be made.
