Public meeting for proposed Kimball Road extension in Rowan County

Transportation officials will hold an open-house public meeting next week for the proposed extension of Kimball Road (approximately 0.6 mile on new location) south of North Chapel Street. The proposed roadway will connect North Chapel Street, near the new railroad bridge to U.S. 29 (Cannon Boulevard) in Landis.

The open-house public meeting will be held Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Moose Lodge at 990 Old Beatty Ford Road, China Grove from 4 to 6 p.m.

The main purpose of the project is to provide an efficient roadway connector linking South Main Street and U.S. 29. This will improve mobility and reduce the volume of through traffic in residential neighborhoods along Bostian Road and within The Oaks of Landis.

Other benefits of the project include a reduction in vehicle and pedestrian conflicts and improved emergency response time through the area.

Interested citizens are encouraged to attend at any time during those hours; please note there will not be a formal presentation.

NCDOT and consultant staff will be available to provide information on the project, answer questions and receive comments.

The public can view maps displaying the location and design of the project as they become available online at http://ncdot.gov/projects/publicmeetings/default.html.

Anyone desiring additional information may contact Division Nine Design Project Manager Brett Abernathy at (336) 747-7800 or jbabernathy@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 Ms. Diane Wilson, Senior Public Involvement Officer at (919) 707-6073 or pdwilson1@ncdot.gov as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
