Since 2016, NCDOT has been working with the Town and nearby neighborhoods and businesses to design intersection improvements for the Catawba Avenue/US 21 corridor. Pictured above is the solution, which will prohibit left-turns from Catawba Avenue. Travelers going west on Catawba and want to head south on US 21 will need to utilize the round-about north of Catawba to get to US 21. Travelers going east on Catawba and want to head north on Holiday Lane will need to utilize the round-about south of Catawba to get to Holiday Lane.
