In response to community concerns, DOT makes changes at Landis RR crossing
WINSTON-SALEM – N.C. Department of Transportation contractors removed a concrete island Saturday morning along the western side of the railroad tracks along West Ryder Avenue in Landis, to allow for additional room for tractor-trailers maneuvering through downtown.
Crews closed a 100-foot section of Ryder Avenue while they removed the traffic island and replaced it with a painted island.
The changes will allow traffic to flow more efficiently through the construction site that is a part of the Double Track Project and Kimball Road extension in Rowan County, the DOT said in a press release.
Landis town officials and residents previously expressed concerns to the DOT about the island and its impact on traffic in the area.
