New Reduced Conflict Intersection near Sanford to begin construction in 2025

September 6, 2023

North Carolina – The North Carolina Department of Transportation is in the design phase for building a $24 million reduced conflict intersection near Sanford along U.S. 1. The intersection is one of the city’s most heavily trafficked roads, and its design cannot efficiently handle the current traffic levels. A new “reduced conflict intersection” will reconfigure the roadway to eliminate direct crossing and left turn movements.

The redesign includes two key projects to facilitate safer transportation conditions. These projects will create a new reduced conflict intersection, reconfiguring the roadway to eliminate direct crossing and left turn movements. The city of Sanford and the DoT will also be given greater capability to adjust the timing of traffic signals for improved, responsive control.

In addition to the new intersection, the endpoint of Tramway Road will also be moved further north by a quarter of a mile.

Above-ground and buried utilities will be moved prior to the beginning of construction in Aug. 2025. The project is estimated to take three years to complete.
