NCDOT seeks input on improving U.S. 64 in Chatham County

Siler City, NC – State transportation officials have proposed upgrading most of U.S. 64 in Siler City by adding a median, sidewalks and crosswalks.

Highway 64 in Siler City, NCNCDOT is seeking public feedback on the proposal for enhancing the five-lane stretch of U.S. 64 (11th Street) between North Glenn Avenue and east of U.S. 421. The proposal includes converting the two-way center lane into a median. The changes would improve traffic safety and flow and better aid pedestrians.

The $11 million project is scheduled to be constructed in 2020.

The public may ask questions and learn more about the proposal during an open house on Tuesday, Nov. 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Paul Braxton Gymnasium at 115 S. Third Ave. in Siler City.
