This project will convert the signalized intersection at Thompson Memorial Drive/Catawba Valley Drive, Route 311 and Electric Road, Route 419 to a roundabout.
The intersection is the area's major connection to Catawba, so it experiences heavy volumes of traffic during the morning and evening peak hours. The proposed roundabout will mitigate congestion and improve safety by reducing the number of conflict points in the intersection.
Construction is underway and is anticipated to be complete in late 2022. The roundabout opened to traffic in July 2022. View an RVTV video about how to navigate the roundabout.
