Traffic Signal Coming to Sledge Road and 160

(July 1, 2004) Tom Thrower, Division Traffic Engineer with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, has conducted a study of the intersection of Sledge Road and NC Highway 160 (Steele Creek Road) and has recommended a traffic signal and turn lanes on both Sledge Road and Highway 160- A design and cost estimate are being prepared. Once these are completed, funds will be requested. "Until funds are approved it is difficult to forecast installation date. It may be as late as next spring." Mr. Thrower said

The traffic study was initiated after local residents complained about how dangerous the intersection was. If you have questions concerning this intersection or other public roads outside the Charlotte city limits or if you would like to encourage a speedy installation of this traffic signal, contact Tom Thrower at 704-982-0101 or tthrower@dot.state.nc.us.
