Planning is underway to widen about a mile of N.C. 62 (Alamance Road) from Ramada Road to U.S. 70 (Church Street) in Burlington.
Preferred Alternative Selected
Based on public input provided by community and local officials, the N.C. Department of Transportation has selected a three-lane alternative as the preferred alternative and has decided to remove the proposed roundabout. Please refer to the Comment Summary & NCDOT Response to Public Comments and the Project Timeline (below) for scheduled right of way acquisition and construction dates.
N.C. 62 is currently two lanes through most of the proposed project area and serves numerous businesses, residents and commuters. Widening the highway, as well as other improvements, would improve traffic flow, help relieve congestion, and support regional mobility and accessibility. Once complete, it also would better accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians and enhance safety for all roadway users.
These goals reflect the community vision for the roadway reflected in regional transportation plans.
Improvements to N.C. 62 from Ramada Road to U.S. 70 are listed in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program as Project U-5844 and is funded for $24.2 million to $26.9 million.
