N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will close New Town Road at Ennis/Broomes Old Mill roads on May 1 to convert the existing intersection to a roundabout. Contractor Kemp Sigmon Construction. Co. Inc. was recently awarded the $893,532 project.
The contract calls for the roundabout to open to drivers in late June. Landscaping and vegetation establishment can continue through the end of the year.
