NCDOT TIP # R-5735
Project Type: Improve Roadway
Affected Counties: Cherokee
Estimated Cost: $ 14,078,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to improve a 1.25-mile section of U.S. 19/74/64/129 from about three-quarters of a mile southwest of Murphy to Hiwassee Street near the First Baptist Church.
Improvements could involve increasing lane widths, adding turn lanes, raised medians, and removing driveways. More than 35 property owners will be affected by these changes.
The NCDOT asserts that these improvements will address traffic congestion and improve the overall safety and traffic flow.
