March 3 meeting on closing rail crossing on Henderson Grove Church Road

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold an informal public meeting March 3 regarding a proposed railway crossing closure on Henderson Grove Church Road in Salisbury.

The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public about the proposed closure due to low traffic volume and an expected increase in future rail traffic. The closing is part of an effort to reduce the number of redundant and/or unsafe rail-highway at-grade crossings nationwide. The crossing will stay open until a new proposed access road is built between Henderson Grove Church Road and Julian Road.

The meeting will take place from 5-7 p.m. at Rowan Public Library headquarters, 201 W. Fisher St.

Citizens may stop by at their convenience; there will not be a formal presentation. Maps will be available to review and NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments. Written comments or questions can also be submitted at the meeting or later by March 20.

Project maps are also available online at http://www.ncdot.gov/projects/publicmeetings/.

For additional information, contact Daniel Havener, project engineer, Rail Division, at 1556 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1556, or 919-715-8797 or dhavener@ncdot.gov.

NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Anamika Laad at alaad@ncdot.gov or 919-707-6072 as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
