Preliminary engineering activities for this project have been temporarily suspended.
Improvements to U.S. 21 (Statesville Road) between Gilead Road and Westmoreland Road through Huntersville and Cornelius are needed to improve traffic flow and accommodate projected future traffic volumes.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is considering options to widen U.S. 21 (Statesville Road) by adding additional lanes with a center median as well as bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. To improve traffic flow, NCDOT is also considering innovative intersection configurations.
The U.S. 21 improvements will be coordinated with other connecting projects in the area:
Intersection improvements at U.S. 21 (Statesville Road) and Gilead Road
Upgrading the existing I-77 interchange at Gilead Road to a diverging diamond interchange
Upgrading the existing I-77 interchange at N.C. 73 (Sam Furr Road) to a split diamond interchange
This project is listed as Projects U-5767 and U-5771 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $42.7 million.
