Amboy & Meadow Roads Widening

​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Suspended
Preliminary engineering activities for this project have been temporarily suspended. 




​Project Overview

Planning and development are underway on a proposed project to widen approximately 2.6 miles of Amboy and Meadow roads in Asheville to a multi-lane roadway between I-240 and N.C. 81 (Biltmore Avenue). The project would also include construction of a bridge over the French Broad River.

Proposed improvements include upgrading the intersections as well as installing bicycle lanes and possibly sidewalks. A new raised median would improve traffic flow, and center-turn lanes would also be added where feasible.

All major intersections are currently performing at an F Level of Service, the lowest in which a roadway’s traffic-carrying ability is measured. Levels of Service range from A — unrestricted maneuverability and operating speeds — to F, where travel on a roadway is characterized by stop-and-go conditions. 

The proposed project would improve traffic flow and safety. 

Project Funding

This project is listed as Project U-4739 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $96 million.
