RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public
workshop on Thursday, Nov. 29 on proposed
improvements to N.C. 143 in Graham County. The workshop will take place
from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Graham County Community Center, located at 196
Knight Street in Robbinsville.
NCDOT is proposing safety improvements, including widening
and realignment, to 4.5 miles of N.C. 143 from West Buffalo Creek to N.C. 143
Business west of Robbinsville. N.C. 143 is a windy, two-lane road that serves
as the primary east-west corridor for Graham County. The crash rate along this
section of N.C. 143 is higher than the state’s average crash rate for rural
Right-of-way acquisition for this project is scheduled to
begin in 2017, and construction is scheduled to start in 2019. These dates are tentative
and are subject to change
NCDOT representatives will be available at the workshop to
answer questions and receive comments about the proposed project. Project maps
will also be on display. The public is invited to attend at any time during the
workshop hours. There will not be a formal presentation.
