Business Owners Virtual Meeting

 

 

Project Description 

​Along with replacement of the bridge on Concord Avenue over U.S. 74/N.C. 200 in Monroe the project design proposes to add:

  • Roundabouts at the intersections with the U.S. 74 ramps and Concord Avenue

  • Sidewalks and four-foot paved shoulders on both sides of Concord Avenue

  • Crosswalks at each leg of the roundabouts

Roundabouts 

The N.C. Department of Transportation builds roundabouts to improve safety for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. They also help reduce the congestion and backups more typical of traditional intersections with stop signs and traffic signals. A driver generally enters the roundabout more quickly than if waiting at a traffic signal. In addition, the modern roundabout is much smaller than older traffic circles and requires vehicles to travel at lower speeds (15-20 mph), making them safer than traffic circles. Additionally, the slower speeds make it easier for a driver to find a gap in traffic inside the roundabout before safely entering it.​

 

For more information on roundabouts, please watch the following video.

Detour Route 

The new bridge will be replaced at the existing bridge location with traffic being detoured offsite during construction. The detour route will follow Skyway Drive/U.S. 601 between IB Shive Drive and U.S. 74, as illustrated below. Construction is anticipated to last 12 months.

Resources For Property Owners 
Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
