The SPDC provided assistance to Mecklenburg County on a Smart Scale grant application for improvements to the intersections of US 58/Regional Airport Road and US 58/Brown Town Road. The project was selected for funding in the amount of $3,726,168 by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in June of 2021. This project will improve the safety of two intersections by addressing sight-distance issues. To accomplish this, both intersections will be reconfigured as directional crossovers that only permit U-turns and left-turns from US 58. Left-turn lanes at both intersections will be constructed and right-turn lanes will be reconstructed to meet minimum VDOT Design Standards. Based on VDOT's Six-Year Improvement Program, this project is anticipated to begin during FY26.
