Project Highlights

The purpose of the proposed project is to provide a route to redirect large truck traffic onto Greene Street from the existing U.S. 1, which connects to downtown Rockingham. The proposed project is needed to address the large amount of truck traffic along U.S. 1.

The project proposes to make improvements to S.R. 1516 (Greene Street) from U.S. 220 to the existing U.S. 1 by:

  • Widening and upgrading Greene Steet to include curb and gutter and sidewalks
  • Realign Greene Street to become part of U.S. 1
  • Upgrade the existing intersection of Greene Street and U.S. 1 


Project History

A virtual public meeting was held in March 2021, with a subsequent affected property owners meeting held in-person at the project site in August 2021.

Since August 2021, the design was revised from a roundabout at the existing intersection of Greene Street and U.S. 1 to a T-intersection to reduce potential impacts to private properties and the surrounding historic district.

In May 2022 and July 2022, the design team was able to get concurrence from the State Historic Preservation Office with some additional right of way changes.

The revised design is available on the project website for public review and comment. 

Public Involvement

Information will be provided to the public in a virtual format on this website. The public is encouraged to provide comments or share their thoughts regarding the proposed concept below

Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
