SALISBURY — A reader has inquired about construction at the corner of Shuping Mill Road and Old Beatty Ford Road.

Lloyd Pace is an ordinance enforcement officer in the Planning and Development Office of the Rowan County Government. He couldn’t find any zoning permits for the construction of new buildings on any of the corners of this intersection.

However, there is work being done on Old Beatty Ford Road that could be confused with new construction.

The intersection of Shuping Mill Road is being improved as part of the 7.4-mile Old Beatty Ford Road improvement project, said Pat Ivey, a Division 9 engineer with the NC DOT. It is scheduled to be finished in July 2020.

Upgrades being completed on Old Beatty Ford Road include widening, relocation of ditches, reducing curves in the roadway, realigning intersections, upgrades to pipes and culverts under the roadway and installing new guardrails and signs. It’s classified by DOT as a separate project from the I-85 widening and construction of a new interchange, but it’s occurring at the same time.
