The demolition of homes in the area of Bamboo Road near Wilson Ridge Road has been taking place for several weeks now. The properties are part of the N.C. Department of Transportation improvement plan for the two roads.
NCDOT is currently in the right-of-way phase of the project, according to Jonathan Rand, Public information officer for Division 11.
Utility relocations will likely begin near the beginning of the year. The let date, the date when the bids for an advertised project are opened, is currently scheduled for June 18, 2024.
The project includes:
widening Wilson Ridge Road and Bamboo Road;
reducing the sharpness of the curves on Wilson Ridge Road between Ridge Crest Road and Bamboo Road;
and adding roundabouts at the Wilson Ridge Road/Deerfield Road, Wilson Ridge Road/Bamboo Road and Bamboo Road/Brook Hollow Road intersections.
