Traffic Signals

Any intersection of 2 roads where at least 1 of the roads is a state controlled road cannot have a traffic signal until the North Carolina Department of Transportation finds that the signal is warranted. Warrants for signalization include thresholds for traffic volumes, number and severity of traffic accidents, and pedestrian volumes.

Additional development may require a traffic signal to be installed and often turn lanes are required to be built as part of the development approval process. The town has also allocated funds for upcoming intersection improvements with transportation bond funds.
