Proposed Design Change


The preferred alternative presented at the 2018 Public Meeting showed:

  • The new bridge being constructed directly north of the existing bridge

  • Happy Hill Road shifting slightly to the west

Based on the slope of the ground being too steep, Happy Hill Road will not be able to tie into N.C. 106 (Dillard Road) from its proposed location. NCDOT now proposes to:

  • Realign Happy Hill Road even further to the west in an effort to improve access to the Happy Hill community from N.C. 106 (Dillard Road)

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.
