The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) proposes to extend Rea Road (SR 1316) from Providence Road (NC 16) east to Weddington Road (NC 84) on a new location, and then widen existing Weddington Road (NC 84) to Indian Trail-Waxhaw Road (SR 1008) in Weddington. The project is approximately 3.8 miles long. The NCDOT is conducting an environmental study of the proposed project, which is included in the draft 2013-2023 NCDOT State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as project number U-3467. The NCDOT is conducting a Citizens Informational Workshop for this project on Tuesday, June 25, 2013. Interested citizens may attend at any time between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. This is an open-house format; there will not be a formal presentation. The purpose of the meeting is to present information on the project’s study area and preliminary alternatives, and to receive public input on the project.
