A proposal for a major overhaul of a portion of Glenwood Avenue could end up costing some people their homes.
People who live along the busy roadway and those who drive it gathered at the Elks Lodge on Leadmine Road Thursday evening. That’s where the North Carolina Department of Transportation hosted a meeting to share plans to improve the traffic mess.
The DOT’s $100 million plan directly affects a four-mile stretch of Glenwood between Interstate 540 and Duraleigh Road. It would create a so-called superstreet, which would remove traffic lights at intersections. Cars at cross streets would only be able to turn right and then make a u-turn before turning right again.
