After many years of push and pull, the hard work and dedication of former Supervisor Granville Hogg have come to fruition. The intersection leading in and out of the Food Lion parking lot finally has a newer, and hopefully safer traffic pattern. The new traffic signals work in tandem with civic design to increase safety.
The addition of traffic lights and speed bumps will adjust and slow the average speed, which had been over 60 mph. The idea here is to limit the speed and volume of traffic to safe levels by slowing down traffic along the whole span of road.
It will also provide a safer means to exit the lot when trying to head south. The lights will eliminate much of the chaos that happened in this section of Rt. 13.
The cost of the project was just over $2 million dollars, and was finished on schedule (Spring 2021).
