The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to convert the intersection of U.S. 74/76 and Old Lake Road to a grade separation; the intersection of U.S. 74/76 and Chauncey Town Road to an interchange; and the intersection of N.C. 214 and Chauncey Town Road to a roundabout. The service road was added to the proposed design based on feedback from the public meeting held in October 2018.
The purpose of this project is to support the upgrade of U.S. 74 to a full control of access facility. A full control of access facility does not allow private driveway connections and requires all connections to the facility to be via ramps at interchanges.
The conversion of the U.S. 74/Old Lake Road intersection to a grade separation will also improve safety for nearby high school traffic by restricting direct access to and from U.S. 74.
The construction of a roundabout at the N.C. 214 intersection with Chauncey Town Road will help facilitate the flow of additional traffic that will be diverted through Lake Waccamaw due to the proposed changes in U.S. 74 access.
A public meeting is scheduled for:
Thursday, May 30, 2019
East Columbus High School
32 Gator Lane
The purpose of this meeting is to inform the public of the project and gather input on the proposed design.
The public may attend at any time during the public meeting hours, as no formal presentation will be made.
NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments. The comments and information received will be taken into consideration as work on the project develops.
The opportunity to submit written comments will be provided at the meeting or can be submitted via phone, email or mail by June 28, 2019.
