Improvements to Highway 160 and Shopton Road W Intersection Planned

(May 10, 2005) The Dixie-Berryhill Thoroughfare plan that was approved by the Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Commission in 2002 included a realignment of the intersection of Steele Creek Road (NC Highway 160) and Shopton Road West.

Developers of the new Berewick community will build a new road running between the Steele Creek Baptist Church and the Steele Creek Masonic Lodge to connect the Berewick Town Center to the Steele Creek Road/Shopton Road W intersection. The intersection will be squared off, eliminating the dangerous curve that is there now. Accidents are common. A tractor trailer struck two vehicles there just last week, killing one woman at the scene. (See Charlotte Observer article Woman killed in crash involving tractor trailer - May 5.)

The intersection reconstruction project will be funded by previously approved bonds. However, no design work has begun. Derrel L. Poole of the Charlotte Department of Engineering and Property Management says that a public meeting will be called in June to solicit input into the intersection design. If you are interested in receiving notification on the time and location of this meeting, contact Mr. Poole at 704-353-1794.
