Project Design

The proposed project design will include: 

  • A roundabout connecting Bailey Rd., Bailey Rd. Extension and Poole Place Dr.  

  • Removal of the sharp curve in the existing Bailey Rd. alignment

  • A 10’ multi-use path to connect the roundabout to the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway

  • Bailey Road will be grade separated from the existing Caldwell Station Creek Greenway


*Based on the proposed project impacts to the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway and proposed Bailey Road Park, both of which are Section 4(f) resources, NCDOT and the Federal Highway Administration propose to make a Section 4(f) de minimis determination pursuant to 23 CFR 774.3. The project design is consistent with the Town of Cornelius Comprehensive Parks and Greenways Master Plan 2015-2025.


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.​

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.
