Residents and drivers who travel on Interstate 40 in western Buncombe County have an opportunity to share their thoughts on a proposal to create an interchange at Liberty Road and construct a new road between Smoky Park Highway and Monte Vista Road.
The project is designed to increase connectivity along I-40 between Smoky Park Highway and Wiggins Road by creating an additional access point to I-40.
The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold an informal public hearing for the combined projects from 4 to 7 p.m. on May 23 at St. Francis Asbury United Methodist Church.
Interested citizens are encouraged to attend the meeting at any time. NCDOT engineers and consulting staff will be on hand to provide information about the project, receive comments, and answer questions. There will be no formal presentation.
A map of the proposed project is available on the NCDOT Public Meetings website at: www.ncdot.gov/projects/publicmeetings.
