Preliminary engineering activities for this project have been temporarily suspended.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is planning a proposed project that would upgrade 1.8 miles of 15th Street in Washington – from west of U.S. 17 Business (Carolina Avenue) heading east to U.S. 264.
Improvements, which include a median and left-turn lanes, will increase safety and reduce congestion caused by vehicles waiting to turn left.
This project is listed as Project U-5860 in the
N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $16.2 million.
