Proposed Design 

​This 2.5 miles long project will widen Gordon Road to a four-lane divided roadway with a 17.5-foot raised median. 

The project would install what are known as reduced conflict intersections, which would redirect motorists from side streets without traffic signals into turning right onto Gordon Road. If they wanted to go in the other direction, they would turn right first, then in a short distance get into a dedicated lane to make a safe U-turn.



The proposed typical section will include:

  • 11-foot travel lanes with curb and gutter

  • 10-foot multi-use path within the grass area, on the north side

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. The following information explains right-of-way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
