The roundabout at the intersection of North Carolina Highway 410 and 41 in Dublin is nearing completion. Construction started on the roundabout in September of 2019 and is estimated to take until June 2020 to complete, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The NCDOT made the intersection into an all-way stop a few years ago, after a traffic analysis showed a high number of drivers on N.C. 410 were pulling into the path of those on N.C. 41. Although the all-way stop reduced crashes, the department is building a roundabout to further improve the location’s safety and traffic flow and plan for future traffic growth.
The department awarded the nearly $1.76 million contract in April 2019 to BMCO Construction of Lumberton.

NCDOT still reports the road way at the intersection is still closed. The detour traffic on NC 410 will use SR 1107, Pleasant Grove Church Rd, as the detour route. The detour route for NC 41 will use NC 131 to SR 1107, Center Rd, back to NC 41. Please use caution while driving on this new pattern and be aware that the detour routes have existing stop signs at some intersections.
The NCDOT published a video for motorists to view on the safe way to use a roundabout. The video is below.
