North Carolina DOT schedules more meetings on proposed crossing projects


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will hold a second round of public meetings later this month concerning potential improvements to 18 grade crossings in Durham.

The informal, open-house-style meetings will be held on March 18, 19 and 21.

A first series of meetings helped NCDOT officials develop preliminary alternatives for the crossings, such as new signs or signal equipment, grade separations, consolidations or closures.

"The goal … is to ensure the safety of passengers and train crews, motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and the surrounding communities," NCDOT officials said in a meeting announcement.
