NCDOT: Public Meeting to Transform Brunswick County Intersection into Interchange

05.13.2019

Public Meeting to Transform Brunswick County Intersection into Interchange
U.S. 17 (Ocean Highway) at N.C. 211 (Southport Supply Road Southeast)

SUPPLY – The N.C. Department of Transportation will host a public meeting this week regarding the proposal to convert a Brunswick County intersection into an interchange.

The proposed project is at the intersection of Ocean Highway and Southport Supply Road Southeast. The project is needed due to traffic volumes at the intersection. A study verified the need for an interchange, which will include building two bridges. That study was part of a project submitted by the Cape Fear Area Rural Transportation Planning Organization, Brunswick County and NCDOT.

More information of the proposal can be found at the NCDOT Public Meetings website.

The public meeting will be held May 16 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Brunswick Senior Center, 101 Stone Chimney Road S.E. in Supply. Interested residents can drop in any time during the meeting to learn more about the proposal, have questions answered and talk with NCDOT representatives. There will be no formal presentation.

All comments will be taken into consideration as the project progresses. The opportunity to submit written comments will be provided at the meeting or may be done by phone or email no later than June 17.

For additional information or to submit comments, please contact NCDOT Project Manager Brian Harding, P.E. at 910- 341-2000 or bjharding@ncdot.gov, or consultant Project Manager Alison Nichols at 704-940-4725 or alison.nichols@rsandh.com.
