W. Catawba Phase 2

W. Catawba P2 Opens in new window


It will come as no surprise to our residents that current traffic volumes exceed the capacity of the 2.7-mile stretch of West Catawba Avenue from Sam Furr Road (N.C. 73) north to Jetton Road. Fortunately, widening this stretch of road is an NCDOT approved project.

2019 Project design has been finalized; no additional design changes will be made. While right-of-way acquisition
has begun, all NCDOT activities have  stopped due to funding shortfalls. Right-of-way acquisition is expected to restart in 2022 with construction anticipated to begin in 2023.
