Gum Branch Road Turn Lanes

Fast Facts

Project # U-5319
Type: Turn lanes
Affected Counties: Onslow
Estimated Cost: $4,815,000


The NCDOT will add a left turn lane from each direction of Gum Branch Road (SR 1308) where it intersects with Western Blvd. (NC 53) near the Lowe’s Foods and CVS in Jacksonville.

Both Western Blvd. and Gum Branch Road are heavily traveled corridors in this area of Onslow County causing traffic back-ups at this intersection. Additionally, more residential development in this area will make the traffic issue worse going forward. The left turn lanes here as well as additional improvements along Western Blvd. and Gum Branch Road are part of an overall larger effort to help alleviate congestion in this growing area of Onslow County.
