CHARLOTTE – The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting next week regarding a proposed project to build a roundabout at the intersection of Cornelius Road, Liva Lane and Perth Road in Troutman.

The purpose of the project is to provide smoother, quicker and safer traffic flow. Driving through roundabouts at slower speeds reduces the frequency and severity of accidents. Travel time is also reduced due to smoother traffic flow, rather than stop-and-go conditions at signalized intersections.

The meeting will be held Tuesday, March 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Troutman Town Hall, located at 400 North Eastway Drive. Interested citizens may attend the meeting at any time as no formal presentation will be made.

For additional information about the proposed project, please contact Bryan Sowell, NCDOT Division 12 Project Manager at P.O. Box 47, Shelby, N.C. 28151-0047, by phone at(704) 480-9047 or via email at

NCDOT will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who wish to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services should contact Anil Panicker at or (704)480-9031 as early as possible so that arrangements can be made.

Persons who speak Spanish and do not speak English, or have a limited ability to read, speak or understand English, may receive interpretive services upon request prior to the meeting by calling 1-800-481-6494.
