Project # U-5305
Fast Facts Type: Road Extension, New Intersections, Realignment
Affected Counties: Randolph
Estimated Cost: $1,875,000
The Mack Road Extension Project is a an undertaking by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to improve the intersection of NC 49 and Mack Road (State Road 1144).
The plans include extending Mack Road across NC 49 to U.S. 64. The current connector road between NC 49 and US 64 will be closed.
The new segment of Mack Road will also join Fisher Circle and both the new intersections, at NC 49 and US 64, will have traffic signals under the current design.
According to the NCDOT, the purpose of this project is to "improve traffic flow, relieve congestion and increase the ability to carry projected traffic volumes on U.S. 64, N.C. 49 and Mack Road."
NCDOT proposes to improve the intersection of N.C. 49 and Mack Road (State Road 1144) by realigning and relocating the N.C. 49 west access ramp to create a safer intersection with Mack Road and the U.S. 64 intersection.
