Spring St., Chestnut Dr., and Broad St. Roundabout Construction

The intersection of Spring St., Chestnut Dr., and Broad St. in Concord will have a new design proven to be more cost effective and safer than comparative intersection designs. Beginning November 9th, Performance Managed Construction, LLC will begin converting the heavily traveled intersection into a Mini Roundabout Teardrop.

Construction will result in the closure of the intersection for approximately six months, weather dependent. Detour routes will be established with clear signage, allowing all residents to make access to their homes. Motorists traveling to Union St. can take Cline Ave. SW to Union St; returning from Union, travel will be from Tribune Ave. SW, to Broad Dr. SW, then to High Ave. SW, to Tournament Dr. SW.

For more information, please contact Transportation Project Engineer, Jamie Williams E.I., at 704-920-5341 or williamsjm@concordnc,gov.

Street Maintenance to begin Fall 2020
The Transportation Department is pleased to announce the commencement of a new, year-long street maintenance contract scheduled to begin this Fall. The maintenance is to include full resurfacing of some streets, and preservation techniques (crack seal or patching) applied to others based on the severity of the road conditions.

The map below shows what streets have been designated for resurfacing or preservation within the given time period. Check back to track the progress on the map and see what streets will be under construction next. Street symbology on the map will change based on the status of the road (Completed, In-progress, Scheduled), and the corresponding infographics will track how close the maintenance is to being complete. In addition, affected residents and motorists will be notified by roadside signs before work is to begin in the area.
