Please be advised that the NCDOT closure of Midland Road for installing a roundabout at NC22/Central Drive is a FULL CLOSURE to both motorists and pedestrians. Reports from NCDOT are that individuals are circumventing barriers, ignoring warning signage, and traversing the area. With the project, requiring heavy equipment, progressing and changing daily, such activity poses a danger to both the public and contractors working at the site. Warnings signs and detours must be followed.
While recognizing the inconvenience to those that typically travel Midland Road as part of their daily routine, this full closure significantly decreases the period of time delays would be necessary as part of the roundabout installation. Removing all traffic from the vicinity improves both project safety and efficiency. The public’s patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
