Since 2015, NCDOT has been working with a stakeholder committee and the Town to design intersection improvements for the West Catawba Avenue/Torrence Chapel Road corridor to improve traffic flow. The solution includes 3 round-abouts - 2 on Torrence Chapel and 1 on Liverpool Parkway. Traffic counts will be taken at the completion of this project. NCDOT has stated that when those traffic counts increase by 10%, left turns from southbound Torrence Chapel to eastbound West Catawba will be prohibited.
