The City of Concord has partnered with N.C. Department of Transportation to improve the intersection of Polar Tent Road, McGill Avenue and Concord Parkway using federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant funds.
After several years of planning and coordination, Sealand Construction has been awarded the contract for this work, which is scheduled to begin the week of May 14. The project will include changes to the intersection designed to improve traffic flow along Poplar Tent Road in the area near its intersection with Concord Parkway.
The improvements will consist of three signalized U-turn points. This will allow all through and right-turn movements at the intersection but will prohibit left turn movements. For this project, no lane closures or lane restrictions will be allowed on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Construction should be complete by mid-December.
