A new right turn lane is now open from West Catawba Avenue northbound onto Westmoreland Road, easing congestion and making turns easier at peak hours.
Town project manager Tyler Beardsley said Wednesday that the work was substantially completed by May 14, ahead of a May 16 contract deadline.
The NC Department of Transportation hired Country Boy Landscaping of Harmony for the $509,400 project. The total cost included design, acquiring right-of-way, relocating utilities and construction.
The Town of Cornelius received a $275,000 CMAQ (Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality) grant for the work and is paying the remaining $231,400 from town funds.
The DOT and contractor will have a final walk-through next week to officially close out the project, or agree on last-minute adjustments, Beardsley said.

What will a widened West Catawba Avenue look like? Smoother flowing traffic, we hope. But how will it do that?
Cornelius officials plan to send the NC Department of Transportation a list of potential turn lanes, traffic signals and even roundabouts at key intersections along the road, from Jetton Road south to NC 73. They’d also like to see roadside walking and biking paths or bike lanes along the road, which the DOT hopes to widen some time in the next few years. Read the full story
