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.
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 would also be able to 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 funded for $11.4 million.
