MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17TH: Cornelius Town Board Commissioners unanimously approved a municipal agreement between the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the town to move forward with the Dual Roundabout project located on the East side of exit 28.
The cost of the project is $17.4 million dollars, $502,000 dollars the town is required to match. Once completed, the roundabouts will be located at U.S. 21 in front of Lucky Dog Bark and Brew, and North of Catawba Avenue at the intersection of Holiday Lane and Sterling Bay Lane West.
The purpose of the roundabouts is to lessen congestion by prohibiting left turns onto Catawba Avenue from the intersection of U.S. 21 and Holiday Lane. Once the project is completed, drivers will be required to pass through the intersection, go through the roundabout, come back to the intersection, and turn right. Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in late 2020 or early 2021.
6 acres on Bailey Road rezoned
Commissioners also approved the first of two public hearings in the rezoning of five industrial-like buildings slated to be built on 6 acres located on Bailey Road, next to the Circle K convenient store that faces N.C. Highway 115. Sitetec Inc. requested the rezoning, as an amendment to a previous conditional rezoning on the property, which is currently owned by Circle K Stores Inc. The development would total 58,800 square feet of buildings for flex space. According to Town Planning Director Aaron Tucker, the buildings could be used for office space, contractors, warehouse space, and light manufacturing.
