CHARLOTTE – The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting next week regarding the Mooresville Traffic Separation Study, which will evaluate highway/railroad crossings along the Norfolk Southern “O” Line between Bridges Farm Road and Mazeppa Road in Mooresville.

The purpose of the study is to determine the need for improvements or elimination of highway and rail crossings at the same level to improve safety and mobility for motorists, rail passengers, and train crews. It is administered by the NCDOT, Federal Highway Administration and Federal Railroad Administration.

During the meeting, citizens can provide input with regard to how the railroad crossings are utilized, and can provide comments or concerns with their existing conditions.

The meeting will be held Monday, March 27, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Merchant Room of the Charles Mack Citizen Center, 215 N. Main Street in Mooresville. Interested citizens may attend the meeting at any time as no formal presentation will be made.
