Duke St. & US 321A Intersection Realignment
Project # U-5776
Type: Intersection realignment
Affected Counties: Caldwell
Estimated Cost: $3,396,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to install a roundabout at Duke Street where it intersects with Hunters Creek Drive in Granite Falls. Hunters Creek Drive will be extended to create a new four-way intersection with US 321A and Short Avenue. This intersection realignment is part of an overall effort to upgrade US 321 due to increased traffic.
Roundabouts help address safety and congestion issues at intersections. They are designed to enhance traffic efficiency, safety and aesthetics, and minimize traffic delays for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.
