2019 will bring numerous road projects to Caldwell County
CALDWELL COUNTY, NC (January 11, 2019) – According to the NCDOT, there are to be numerous road projects here in Caldwell County this year.
The most visible of these projects are going to be on U.S. 321 at Mission Road, Pine Mountain Road and Mount Herman Road all of which will become “superstreet” intersections.
As soon as we hear approximate start times for these projects, we will pass them along.
Definition of a Superstreet
When two roads cross each other, you get an interchange. In a “typical” red light/green light intersection, you can turn right, left, or go straight from any direction.
The superstreet concept is an alternative to this type of intersection.
In a superstreet scenario, roads joining the “superstreet” can only turn right onto it. To turn left and travel in the other direction, drivers must first turn right and then make a U-turn.
Granite Falls “5 Points” intersection on Dudley Shoals Road
Another project will take place at “5 Points” in Dudley Shoals which is at the 5-way intersection of Dudley Shoals Road, Grace Chapel Road, Campground Road and Peach Orchard Road. A roundabout will be constructed.
