Turn Lane Improvements at US Hwy 601 (Warren C. Coleman Blvd.) and NC Hwy 3 (Union Street)



The City of Concord, in coordination with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), will soon begin the project to widen portions of US Highway 601 South and NC Highway 3 (South Union Street). This project is included in the current NCDOT State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as Project C-4918B and is funded through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ). Planning studies were completed to document the impacts of the proposed project on the human and natural environment.

JT Russell and Sons, Inc., the awarded contractor, will initiate construction during the beginning of February 2015 and complete construction by Monday, August 31, 2015.

The private utility companies, such as Time Warner, WindStream, and PSNC, are relocating their utilities in preparation of the roadway construction.

Like most roadway projects, there might be some additional disruptions, delays and congestion to the traffic during the roadway improvement construction; but at least one lane of traffic will remain open at all times and the ingress and egress to all local businesses and dwellings will be maintained during construction.  This roadway construction will be temporarily deferred during the Easter, Memorial, and Independence holidays; during the NASCAR, NHRA, and Auto Fair events, and during times of unusually heavy traffic.

For more information about this project, please contact Project Manager, Sherri Moore, at 704-920-5415 or moores@concordnc.gov.
