The original project was a $250,000 right turn lane on westbound Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road.  Upon obtaining valuable input from citizens and business owners through the public involvement process, NCDOT agreed to partner with the City on this project (in the amount of $350,000) to achieve a larger scope of improvements.  City staff also discovered the potential of private funding for the traffic signal at Couloak and Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road.

Proposed improvements for Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road include:
  • Eastbound right turn lane (original scope)
  • Median construction from existing to Couloak Drive
  • Signal at Couloak Drive (paid by private funds)
  • Convert existing pavement to two through lanes(from Walmart entrance to Couloak Drive)
  • Add second north bound left turn lane on Brookshire Boulevard

  • Improve capacity of the intersection to accommodate the heavy right turn movements going to I-485.
  • Improve access to surrounding driveways.


Cost:  $TBD

Please note that the project cost will include all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right-of-way, utility relocation, design fees, construction, signalization and permits.
