Union County has opened a three-week public comment period on alternate designs for six critical intersections throughout the County. The intersections were identified in 2019 as part of a Critical Intersection Analysis. According to Planning Director Lee Jenson, “The fact that these intersections are inside five municipalities demonstrates the effective relationships and engagement we have throughout the County.”

The next step is development of design alternatives and cost estimates to help municipalities, Union County, and the NCDOT determine the preferred solution to address safety and congestion issues at these six intersections:

  • NC 16 and NC 75 in Waxhaw
  • NC 75 and Old Providence in Waxhaw
  • Forest Lawn and Potter in Weddington
  • Lawyers and Stevens Mill in Stallings
  • Old Camden and Morgan Mill in Unionville
  • Sutherland and Walkup in Monroe

There are two sessions scheduled for residents to review the alternatives and provide feedback. These are drop-in sessions and there will not be a formal presentation. The format and information provided will be the same.

  • March 9, 2020 from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
    Mineral Springs Volunteer Fire Department
    5804 Waxhaw Highway
    Mineral Springs, NC 28108
  • March 10, 2020 from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
    Indian Trail Town Hall
    315 Matthews-Indian Trail Road
    Indian Trail, NC 28079

Residents may also review the same materials and provide feedback online. The County is receiving public input through March 27, 2020.

The Board of Commissioners and governing bodies in affected municipalities will be asked to endorse a design for each intersection between May and June of 2020.
