The transportation department will hold a citizens’ informational workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 15, about a proposed project to improve N.C. 107 from north of Old Cullowhee Road in East LaPorte to N.C. 281 in Tuckaseegee in Jackson County.
The meeting will be in the Cullowhee Valley School cafeteria. Attendees may drop in at any time during these hours. There will not be a formal presentation.
The proposed project would improve safety on this section of N.C. 107 by widening lanes and shoulders, improving intersections and realigning parts of the road. Right-of-way acquisition is scheduled to begin in 2014, and construction is scheduled for 2016.
