Project Overview

N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to construct a roundabout at N.C. 11 and Old Lake Road intersection.

Project Highlights

The project proposes to construct a roundabout in place of the four-way stop-sign controlled intersection at N.C. 11 and Old Lake Road.

Traffic will be detoured onto existing roadways during construction of the roundabout.  The off-site detour north of the project follows portions of Old Lake Road, Woodyard Road, and N.C. 87.  The off-site detour south of the project follows portions of U.S. 74/U.S. 76, N.C. 87, Old Lake Road, and Woodyard Road. 

Project History

In late 2019 NCDOT conducted a crash analysis to evaluate safety conditions at the N.C. 11 and Old Lake Road intersection.  From October 2014 to September 2019, 18 crashes occurred, including one fatal crash and 13 injury crashes.  Most of the crashes resulted from vehicles on Old Lake Road failing to yield to vehicles traveling on N.C. 11. Based on the results, STIP Project W-5806A was funded as a safety project.  In June 2021 the intersection was changed to a four-way stop-sign controlled condition as an interim safety measure to reduce crashes.  The proposed roundabout is recommended as the ultimate solution to continue to reduce crashes, while also providing better traffic mobility.  The project is currently in the development, environmental, and engineering phase.  Construction on the project is currently scheduled to begin in Spring 2023.

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.
