An information meeting by the City of Graham and N.C. Department of Transportation is scheduled at the Graham City Hall, 201 South Main Street, from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24 to gather feedback about a proposed roundabout at the intersection of East Harden Street and East Elm Street.
DOT’s depiction of the roundabout option and traditional intersection:
The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes that these improvements would:
• Replace the existing signalized intersection with a hybrid roundabout intersection
• Provide 12-foot travel lanes
• Provide a dual left-turn through the roundabout for the southbound East Elm Street to eastbound East Harden Street movement
• Add a dedicated right turn “slip lane” for westbound East Harden Street, allowing free flow movement through the roundabout for traffic heading north on East Elm Street
• Provide 5-foot sidewalks on both sides of East Harden Street and East Elm Street
• Improve crosswalks. To reduce vehicle conflicts near the intersection, the existing connection between Walker Avenue and East Elm Street would be eliminated.
