NCDOT Planning Ranch Road Extension To Begin in 2022

December 9th, 2020

The North Carolina Department of Transportation says a significant road project could better accommodate traffic to a busy highway in fast-growing Clayton.

NCDOT proposes to extend Ranch Road to U.S. Route 70 Business and N.C. Highway 42. The proposal also includes realigning Little Creek Church and Ranch roads’ intersection to make Ranch Road the main through movement.

The department says the project’s benefits include:

• Creating direct access between N.C. 42 to U.S. 70 bypass

• Reducing traffic congestion on U.S. 70 Business

• Improving response time for emergency personnel

• Providing an alternate route for when NCDOT begins widening N.C. 42 between U.S. Business and N.C. 50

The project is estimated to cost over 8 million dollars and construction is scheduled to begin in 2022. NCDOT is requesting public input on the proposed plan before moving forward. Feedback is being accepted until December 11th, 2020 and will be considered when finalizing the design.
