DOT considers another ‘roundabout’
Unlike Arapahoe proposal, this nightmare spot needs big-time help!
BEAUFORT — State transportation officials will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8, for a proposed roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 70 (Live Oak Street) and N.C. 101 in the Town of Beaufort. Drivers travel through a roundabout in the same circular direction at a lower speed. In North Carolina, crashes of all types have been reduced by almost half where roundabouts have been installed at existing intersections.
The meeting will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Beaufort Train Depot, located at 614 Broad St. in Beaufort. Interested residents may attend at any time during the meeting, as no formal presentation will be made. NCDOT representatives will be available to provide information and answer questions. The opportunity to provide written comments will also be provided.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting and would like additional information or to provide comments, may contact NCDOT Division Project Manager Rachelle Beauregard at firstname.lastname@example.org; (919) 239-7168; or P.O. Box 1587, Greenville, N.C., 27835. Comments can be submitted through Nov. 30, 2017.
