INDIAN TRAIL – The Town of Indian Trail is encouraging residents to provide input to the N.C. Department of Transportation on funding road projects scheduled for 2020 to 2029.
A handful of Indian Trail projects are on the list:
• Old Monroe Road/Old Charlotte Highway widening throughout Indian Trail ($38.1 million).
• Wesley Chapel-Stouts Road widening to four lanes from U.S. 74 to Rogers Road ($31.9 million).
• Bridge over the railroad tracks on Wesley Chapel-Stouts Road ($10 million).
• Price Mill Creek Greenway between Old Monroe Road and Garden Oak Drive ($3.15 million).
• Bicycle lanes along Brandon Oaks Drive and neighborhood sidewalk connections from Beacon Hills to nearby attractions ($262,500).
“We hope our residents will take advantage of this opportunity to let NCDOT know how vital these projects would be for our community,” Communications Director Mike Parks said. “Town officials are always working closely with our partners with the state to make sure our transportation needs are being met, and our residents speaking up about their needs will help strengthen our push to bring more projects to Indian Trail.”
Residents can reach out to NCDOT from Feb. 25 to March 1. They will be able to learn more about the projects and make comments at the NCDOT office in Albemarle (716 W. Main St.). They also can provide comments online through April 15 at https://publicinput.com/2020-2029-STIP.
The plan will be considered for final approval this summer, according to NCDOT.
