DOT wants to hear from public about Old Beatty Ford Road

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24, regarding a proposed safety project to relocate a section of Old Beatty Ford Road from its intersection with Bostian Road to Lentz Road in Rowan County. The hearing will take place at the Kannapolis Moose Family Center, located at 990 Old Beatty Ford Road in China Grove.
The Environmental Assessment (EA) has been completed and a recommended alternative selected. The recommended alternative includes constructing a two-lane road on a new location with a new grade separation over I-85 near Kannapolis, Landis and China Grove.
The bridge carrying existing Old Beatty Ford Road over I-85 will be removed as part of this project. This project study area is approximately 3.1 miles long. The project is currently scheduled for right of way acquisition in September 2014 and construction in September 2015.
The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan has identified this section of Old Beatty Ford Road as a major thoroughfare that needs improvement. The purpose of the project is to increase safety for the traveling public.
Interested citizens are invited to attend at any time during the meeting hours, as there will be no formal presentation. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and listen to comments regarding the project. Citizens will also have the opportunity to submit comments and questions in writing.
Maps displaying the location and design of the project, as well as a copy of the EA are available for public review at the following locations:
• Town of China Grove, 402 N. Main St. – Suite 204, Salisbury;
• Town of Landis, 312 S. Main St., Landis;
• Rowan County Planning & Development, 402 N. Main St. – Suite 204, Salisbury; and the
• NCDOT District Office, 4770 S. Main St., Salisbury.
Copies of the maps are also available on the project website at http://www.ncdot.gov/projects/publicmeetings/.
