Workshop Tuesday on rail crossing in Kannapolis

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a citizens’ informational workshop on Tuesday about changes proposed for the railroad crossing at Rogers Lake Road and Winecoff School Road in Kannapolis.
The meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Kannapolis Train Station at 201 S. Main St., Kannapolis.
NCDOT proposes to build a grade separation, or bridge, in the area of the existing Rogers Lake Road at-grade railroad crossing and to close the railroad crossings at Rogers Lake Road and Winecoff School Road. A grade separation means using a bridge to make the road go above or below the railroad tracks
This proposal is part of an effort to reduce the number of redundant or unsafe rail-highway at-grade crossings statewide. The road will either go above or below both the railroad tracks and Main Street to create a crossing that has no potential for conflict with the railroad.
NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments in an informal setting about the proposed project. The project purpose and need as well as the project study area will be presented. However, since this project is in the early planning stages no designs will be presented. Public input is important at this stage in the project planning process. The opportunity to submit written comments or questions will be provided. Interested residents may attend at any time during the above mentioned hours. No formal presentation will be made.
NCDOT initially held a workshop for a Rogers Lake Road at-grade railroad crossing improvement project on July 21, 2009. This is an interim project that will improve the safety of the railroad crossing and is scheduled to be constructed in 2012.
Anyone seeking additional information may contact Kristina Solberg, PE, Environmental & Planning Branch, Rail Division at 1553 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1553, phone (919) 733-7245 x 275, or email klsolberg@ncdot.gov.
NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this workshop. Anyone requiring special services should contact Solberg as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
