This transportation project although small in size, will do BIG things for our community. Specifically the project will realign the Cross Street and Barnes Street intersection with Western Avenue. The new alignment will eliminate a difficult intersection often used as a truck route. The Town has been a longtime advocate for this project and purchased the road-right-of-way (ROW) in 2014 as a good faith effort to move the transportation needs of our community forward. The necessary funding was received through the NCDOT with an anticipated completion date of December 31, 2018 or sooner.
