Shuttle Service Available for NCDOT Public Meeting
DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Davidson Parks & Recreation bus will provide residents transportation to the N.C. Department of Transportation public meeting on Thursday, October 5, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Cornelius Town Hall (21445 Catawba Avenue). The shuttle will operate from Davidson Town Hall starting at 4:50 and will run on a continuous loop until 7:10 p.m.
The NCDOT meeting is being held to provide citizens information regarding two proposed projects in Cornelius and Davidson.
One project would improve the intersection of N.C. 115 (Main Street) at Potts Street, potentially with a roundabout. The other proposes to extend Potts Street to Sloan Street, add a multi-use trail between N.C. 115 and Griffith Street, and a roundabout at the Sloan Street/Griffith Street intersection. The purpose of these projects is to provide travel alternatives through Cornelius and Davidson by improving connectivity and traffic flow. During the meeting, NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions about the projects and receive input from citizens. Interested citizens may attend the meeting at any time as no formal presentation will be made.
In order to encourage attendance and alleviate the need to park at Cornelius Town Hall, “We recognize that traffic flow is challenging around town and feel that these two NCDOT projects will help provide motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians with alternative routes through town,” said Town Manager Jamie Justice. “We want Davidson citizens to be aware of these two projects, provide feedback, and have an easy way to get to and from the meeting.”
Written comments can be provided at the meeting or by phone, email, or mail through Oct. 19. Comments received will be taken into consideration as the project develops.
