DOT offers sneak preview of U.S. 258 project

A construction project to address congestion issues between Pony Farm Road and N.C. 53 produced mixed but hopeful reactions among residents at a recent public meeting to discuss the plans. “The project is not a widening or anything like that,” Transportation Administrator Anthony Prinz said. “It’s more of an access management project, where the Department of Transportation will be installing a median. They’ll be installing crossovers at certain points in the roadways so people can turn left.” The center lane, he added, will be replaced with a grassy median. “On the positive side of things, it’s going to make 258 more efficient and safer for daily commuters,” Prinz said. “On the not so positive side of that, there will have to be some right of way acquisition.”
