DOT plans meeting at East Rowan on road changes

The N.C. Department of Transportation invites citizens to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 17, to discuss safety improvements to the intersection of U.S. 52, and Anthony, Crescent and Gold Knob roads near Rockwell.
NCDOT statistics show 17 crashes, including one fatality, have occurred at the intersection from 2008-2010. In addition, current total crash rates at the intersection exceed the statewide total crash rate for U.S. routes in rural areas.
To help prevent accidents and enhance safety for the more than 11,000 vehicles that travel through the intersection each day, the department plans to make important improvements to the area. Currently, NCDOT is considering two main options, which include:
• Converting Gold Knob Road into a dead-end road, and realigning Anthony and Crescent roads to connect with U.S. 52 at more of a right angle; and
• Converting Anthony Road into a dead-end road, and realigning Crescent and Gold Knob roads to connect with U.S. 52 at more of a right angle.
Both options would also include adding left turn lanes and improving the drainage system along U.S. 52.
The meeting will be held at East Rowan High School, which is located at 175 Saint Luke’s Church Road in Salisbury. Citizens are welcome to drop in any time between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. There will be no formal presentation. NCDOT representatives will be available to explain the project, answer questions and accept comments. The department will use the feedback provided by citizens to help guide the project’s design and development.
Citizens seeking additional information may contact Gene Tarascio, Project Planning Engineer, via mail at 1548 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1548; phone at (919) 707-6046 or email at gtarascio@ncdot.gov.
NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Tarascio as early as possible, so that arrangements can be made.
