The roadway is scheduled for resurfacing which provides an opportunity to improve crosswalks, curb ramps and pavement markings, and to evaluate additional signage, left and two-way center turn-lane adjustments, the corridor's posted speed limit and the feasibility of adding bicycle lanes.
The project is part of regularly scheduled maintenance activities. In addition to bringing crosswalks and curb ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act standards and considering a uniform 25 mph posted speed limit along the entire corridor, NCDOT is seeking your input on improvements you’d like to see on Haywood Road. Whether or not you have specific suggestions improvement, we want to hear about any areas along the corridor where you see issues, and locations where you are satisfied with the existing condition. Please keep in mind that improvements are limited to the existing right of way (existing footprint) along the corridor.
Below are some images that include the existing road condition, and renderings of concepts to consider when providing input. The renderings depict bike lanes on one and both sides of the road, and modifications to existing sidewalk locations to help ensure 5 feet of space around utility poles that limit accessibility. When considering the corridor, keep in mind that certain improvements may have impacts on the road’s existing condition. For example, the addition of bike lanes, if feasible, may impact the available space on the roadway for parking spaces.
Please take the short survey below.
