Klumac Road Bridge/Grade Separation Logo


This project involves constructing a new railroad bridge carrying the North Carolina Railroad (NCRR) tracks over Klumac Road in Rowan County, which will reduce the risk of automobile/train collisions, improve safety for automobile and rail passengers, and reduce automobile and train traffic congestion. The work also includes removing the railroad crossing at Klumac Road and constructing 0.6 miles of Klumac Road on new location to tie in to the intersection of Mooresville Road and South Main Street.

This section of the NCRR is part of the busiest railroad corridor in North Carolina. This project is among improvements to the NCRR corridor between Raleigh and Charlotte to increase railroad capacity, efficiency, and safety.
