[ARCHIVED] NCDOT to Hold Workshops for Proposed Widening of U.S. 70

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold two citizens’ informational workshops regarding the proposed project to widen and improve a nearly 11-mile section of U.S. 70 (Burlington Road/South Church Street) from Mount Hope Church Road in Guilford County to Westbrooke Avenue in Alamance County.

The workshops will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on the following dates:

• Oct. 13 at Harvest Baptist Church, 3741 S. Church St., Burlington.
• Oct. 17 at Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church, 5120 Burlington Rd., Greensboro.

NCDOT representatives will be available to speak one-on-one with residents, answer questions and gather public input regarding the proposed project. The opportunity to submit written comments or questions will be provided and is encouraged. The comments and suggestions received will be considered during the planning process. Citizens may drop in anytime during the workshop hours. There will be no formal presentation and the same information will be available at each workshop.

NCDOT proposes to widen this section of U.S. 70 (Burlington Road/South Church Street) to a four-lane divided roadway that will tie into the existing roads. The purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow and traffic carrying capacity. Additional right of way will be required for this project.

NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to participate in the workshop. Anyone requiring special services should contact Mr. Al-Sharawneh as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.
