RALEIGH —The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold an informal public meeting regarding proposed safety improvements on Cedar Creek Road (N.C. 53), west of I-95 to east of I-95 in Fayetteville.

This update will make the route safer and more effective in handling the traffic in the area. The project would include construction of a median with directional crossovers for U-turns, mid-block pedestrian crosswalks with refuge islands and flashing beacons and sidewalk. Crews will also resurface the project area.

The meeting will take place from 5 until 7 p.m. on April 2, at the J. W. Seabrook Elementary School at 4619 N.C. HWY 210 S, Fayetteville.

NCDOT representatives will be available during the open-house style setting to provide information, answer questions and collect comments regarding the proposed project. Citizens are welcome to attend at any time during the meeting hours, as there will not be a formal presentation. Public comments will also be accepted through April 16.

To submit comments or for additional information, contact Scott Pridgen, Division Project Manager at P.O. Box 1150, Fayetteville, NC, 28302, by phone: (910) 437-2611 or by e-mail at gspridgen@ncdot.gov.
