PUBLIC NOTICE: NC DOT UPDATE ON PROPOSED WIDENING OF ODELL ROAD (S.R. 4202) FROM FORT BRAGG BOUNDARY TO BRAGG BOULEVARD (N.C. 24-87) IN SPRING LAKE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY

 

TIP Project No. U-5605

 

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will hold an informal public meeting regarding the proposed widening of Odell Road (S.R. 4202) from the Fort Bragg boundary to Bragg Boulevard (N.C. 24-87) in Spring Lake, Cumberland County. The proposed project is to widen Odell Road (S.R. 4202), currently a two-lane road, to four lanes with a 23-foot raised grass median.  The western terminus of Odell Road abuts Fort Bragg.  The purpose of the project is to support a new Access Control Point (ACP) proposed for Fort Bragg.  The Fort Bragg Comprehensive Transportation Systems Plan, completed in 2010, recommends a new ACP at the western end of Odell Road to provide a more convenient access point for base personnel.  This new ACP is intended to help relieve traffic on Bragg Boulevard in Spring Lake but would likely increase traffic along Odell Road.

 

The meeting will take place on Thursday, November 20, from 4 until 7 p.m. at the Town Hall in Grady Howard Conference Room, 300 Ruth Street, Spring Lake.

 

There will be maps displaying the project study area for the public to review. The proposed project may include potential relocation and acquisition of some additional right of way. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments. The opportunity to submit written comments will also be provided at the meeting or by mail until November (date to be determined). Interested citizens may attend at any time during the above mentioned hours. Note: There will not be a formal presentation.
