Julian Road Widening

Fast Facts

Project# U-5738
Type: Raod Widening
Affected Counties: Rowan
Estimated Cost: $12,614,000


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen 1.3 miles of Julian Road between US 601 (Jake Alexander Boulevard) and Summit Park Drive in Salisbury. The existing road will be widened to a four-lane, median divided roadway.

As a connection to I-85, Julian Road is considered critical to traffic flow for residents of Rowan County, especially in the towns of Salisbury, Granite Quarry, and Faith. Widening it to four lanes is hoped to help reduce traffic congestion while providing for an increase in intra-county travel.
