Public meeting Tuesday on widening of Julian Road

The North Carolina Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 14 regarding two upcoming projects in Salisbury.

The meeting will take place at the Atrium Building at Rowan-Cabarrus Community college, 1333 Jake Alexander Blvd. South, from 4 p.m to 7 p.m.

Topics include the upcoming widening of Julian Road between U.S. 601 (Jake Alexander Road) and I-85 as well as the closure of the railroad crossing on Henderson Grove Church Road.

On average, Julian Road currently sees anywhere from 13,800 cars per day (near Summit Park Drive) to 22,700 (near Corporate Circle). By 2040 and with project completion, these numbers could rise to 16,800 and 26,800 respectively.

Traffic numbers will not be greatly impacted through the closure of the Henderson Grove Church Road railroad crossing.

During the meeting, Department of Transportation representatives will be available to answer questions and listen to comments regarding the projects. There will be no formal presentation.

Citizens may submit comments and questions in writing. Comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops.

The public can view maps displaying the location and design of the project at http://www.ncdot.gov/projects/publicmeetings.
