LINK TO JANUARY 6, 2021 VIRTUAL DESIGN PUBLIC HEARING INFORMATION

This proposed project will enhance capacity and improve traffic flow by eliminating the right turn lane bump-out areas along Route 3 westbound between Route 639 (Bragg Road) and Chamber Drive. This will allow this lane to be used by through traffic and by traffic turning right.

On Route 3 eastbound, a concrete island at the right turn lane to Mall Drive will be modified, and the right lane will become a shared through travel and right turn lane. Dual right turn lanes from northbound Mall Drive to Route 3 eastbound will be built, controlled by a dedicated traffic signal. 

Design Public Hearing 

A design public hearing has been scheduled for this project for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. This will be a virtual/online event. Click the "Public Outreach" tab to the right for information on how to participate.
