What the new road will look like

Written by 

About $1.5 million in roadwork is planned to accommodate the increased traffic on South Main Street and Hyatt Creek Roads from the Super Wal-Mart and Home Depot development. There will be two entrances to the development: one off Hyatt Creek Road and one off South Main Street. Here’s a description of what the new road will look like:

U.S. 23-74 on-and-off ramps on the Anderson Auto side

• There will be a roundabout in the middle of Hyatt Creek Road. Drivers coming off the by-pass will go through the roundabout at the bottom of the exit ramp. The roundabout was chosen in lieu of a traffic light because it will move traffic more quickly. A traffic light would back up traffic all the way up the exit ramp and onto the bypass.

• There will be a dedicated right-turn lane coming from the development and leading up the on-ramp heading toward Asheville.

Entrance to the development on Hyatt Creek Road

• Hyatt Creek Road will be five lanes between the by-pass and the entrance to the development.

• Coming from the bypass toward the entrance there will be three lanes: two lanes are left-turn only into the development and one continues straight ahead on Hyatt Creek Rd.

• Leaving the development and going toward the by-pass, there will be two lanes: one is a dedicated right-turn lane to get on the bypass and one will be for going straight.

• Coming from South Main Street toward the entrance, there will be three lanes: one is a right-turn into the development or straight thru, one is straight-thru only and one is a left-turn only into the Huddle House.

• Leaving the development heading toward South Main Street, there will be two lanes: one left-turn only and one right-turn only.

• There will be a traffic light at the entrance.

Entrance to the development on South Main Street

• South Main Street will be three lanes around the entrance.

• Two lanes will be for straight-thru traffic, one in both directions.

• Approaching from town, there will an extra lane for right-turns only into the development.

• Approaching from the other way, the extra lane will be for left-turns only into the development.

• There will be a traffic light at the entrance.
