Titman/Cramerton Road Widening (Gastonia)
NCDOT TIP # U-5103
Project Type: Road widening
Affected Counties: Gaston County
Estimated Cost: $5.6 million
Currently Titman/Cramerton Road is a two lane road that essentially dead ends into Lowell-Bethesda Road when traveling east in Gastonia, NC.
Under the new plans Titman Rd. will be widened to three lanes (turn lane in middle, lanes on either side) with curbs and gutters, beginning at South New Hope Road until its current dead end at Lowell-Bethesda.
But instead of dead-ending, Titman will extend northeast and connect to Wilkinson Blvd (US 29/74). This new road will also be three lanes.
The Titman/Cramerton Road Widening Project is being overseen by the Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO), the City of Gastonia and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).
This project ranked 4th in terms of priority on the GCLMPO's project list for 2035.
According to the Gaston Gazette, the city does not anticipate having to close Titman road during the construction phase, although commuters can expect short delays to move equipment around during the process.
