The North Carolina Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting Thursday on an intersection improvement project in New Bern.
In an effort to improve traffic flow and safety, the Department is proposing a roundabout at the intersection of N.C. 55 and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. In North Carolina, crashes of all types have been reduced by almost half where roundabouts have been installed. The meeting will take place at 5pm at Grover C. Fields Middle School and have maps of the study area and proposed designs. Residents can submit comments and speak with NCDOT representatives about the proposed project. Written comments can be submitted through Feb. 22.
