Project Description​

A corridor study for Morganton Rd between west of Reilly Road and Dobbin Avenue was completed by NCDOT in March 2023. The study included traffic safety and operations analyses, with close coordination between NCDOT, City of Fayetteville, and representatives of Cumberland County.

The results of the Corridor Study recommend a number of short-term (0 to 5 years) and long-term improvements (5+ years) to address traffic safety and mobility along the corridor. These proposed improvements are currently unfunded, so a schedule for implementation is not yet determined.  

Short-term improvement recommendations:

  • Backplates on signal heads to improve visiability

  • Concrete channelization to reduce conflicts

  • Pedestrian accommodations to include crosswalks and pedestrian signal heads

  • Signal timing and phasing adjustments

  • Sidewalk connectivity

Long-term improvement recommendations:

  • A median island is proposed along the entire study section, with access points at signalized, reduced conflict intersections and signalized U-turn points in between intersections as needed

  • Pedestrian crosswalks and pedestrian signals at most signalized intersections 

Changes in Access:

  • EB Morganton at Reilly – right turn only with a signalized U-turn on Reilly Rd 

  • Right turn only from Evanston St, Tollhouse Dr, Grande Oaks Dr, McFadyen Dr

  • No through movement from Bonanza Dr and Old Farm Rd

  • Right turn only from Longbranch Dr

  • No through movement from Westlake Rd and Loch Haven Dr

  • Right turn only from Hearthstone Dr

  • No through movement from Cross Creek Plaza at Skibo Rd and from Cross Creek Plaza/Cross Point Centre at Morganton Rd

  • No left turn from Skibo Rd, no left turn from Morganton Rd at Skibo Rd. U-turn provided on Morganton Rd west of intersection

  • Right turn only from Cliffdale Rd, Northview Dr, Skye Dr


Traffic signals are proposed at the following locations:

  • Eastbound U-turn east of Grande Oaks Dr
  • Eastbound and WB U-turns in between McFadyen Dr and Bonanza Dr/Old Farm Rd

  • Eastbound and WB U-turns in between Bonanza Dr/Old Farm Rd and Longbranch Dr

  • WB U-turn west of Westlake Rd/Loch Haven Dr

  • Eastbound U-turn east of Westlake Rd/Loch Haven Dr

  • Westbound U-turn west of Hearthstone Dr

  • Westbound U-turn west of Skibo Rd

  • Eastbound and Westbound U-turns in between Cliffdale Rd and Northview Dr

  • Eastbound U-turn east of Skye Dr

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.
