Paid for by Transportation Bond
Transportation Bond was approved in November 2017 for $4 million to be used for road, sidewalk and corridor improvements throughout Town. Major projects identified are: Road Resurfacing, Sidewalk Construction, Major Intersection Improvements and Hwy 49 Corridor Improvements. Funding of the bond had to wait until July 1, 2018 and bond authorization requires the Town to execute funding within seven years of bond approval, with the Town having the option to extend it out to 10 years if desired. A significant number of projects will be initiated in 2019-2020. Private development may speed up or slow down the implementation of some projects.
Tom Query Road/Caldwell Road:
- The Town will install a four-way stop at the intersection in the coming months and the long-term plan (2+ years from completion) is to install a signalized intersection with turn lanes. Both improvements will be fully funded by the Town but need NCDOT approvals.
Tom Query Road/Robinson Church Road:
- A round-a-bout will be installed but the timeline is dependent upon potential residential development at the intersection. Potential private funding could spur the timeline of the project. Without private development, the project is 2-4 years from beginning.
Main Street/Roberta Road:
- A signalized intersection will be installed and is expected to be fully funded and constructed as part of the Town Center rezoning approval. The timeline is dependent upon private development.
Rocky River Road/Robinson Church Road:
- Turn lanes will be installed on north and southbound Robinson Church Road. A portion of the project will be funded by private development that is already approved, and the timeline is dependent upon private development. Implementation could be within the next two years.
