Project Overview

The N.C. Department of Transportation is preparing to:

  • widen Rockfish Rd. (S.R. 1112) from Golfview Rd. (S.R. 1115) to N.C. 59 (N. Main St.) and
  • widen Golfview Rd. from Rockfish Rd. to N.C. 59 in Hope Mills in Cumberland County. 

The purpose of this project is to increase road capacity, improve mobility, and improve vehicular and pedestrian safety. The project will increase road capacity by widening a portion of Rockfish and Golfview Rds. to four travel lanes with a landscaped median.

To improve mobility and safety near Rockfish Elementary School and the Hope Mills municipal complex, a two-lane roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of Rockfish and Golfview Roads. The addition of a median will improve mobility on Golfview and Rockfish Roads, by closing off most side streets to left turns.

In addition:

  • The intersection of Rockfish Rd. with Moulder St. will be rerouted to Bolt Dr.
  • A portion of Moulder St. near Brower Park will be removed
  • An additional roundabout will replace the current intersection of Rockfish Rd. and Park Blvd.
  • Improvements to crosswalks will be made near the school. New sidewalks will be constructed,on both sides of the roadway.

NCDOT builds roundabouts to improve safety for drivers,​ pedestrians and bicyclists. They also help reduce the congestion and backups more typical of traditional intersections with stop signs and traffic signals.

A driver generally enters the roundabout more quickly than if waiting at a traffic signal. In addition, the modern roundabout is much smaller than older traffic circles and requires vehicles to travel at lower speeds (15-20 mph), making them safer than traffic circles. Additionally, the slower speeds make it easier for a driver to find a gap of traffic inside the roundabout before safely entering.

 roundabout is easy to drive through once you understand how it works. As you approach it, you’ll see a yellow “roundabout ahead” sign, indicating you should slow down. Drivers yield to any vehicles or bicyclists already in the roundabout. Everyone using the roundabout moves in a counterclockwise direction, and those already in it do not yield to approaching vehicles.  Drivers should use turn signals when exiting and yield to pedestrians using the crosswalk at the roundabout.

Single Lane Roundabout at Rockfish and Park   

  • Once inside the roundabout, you simply exit at the desired street
  • Travel a quarter of the way around to turn right at the next street
  • Go halfway around to continue straight
  • Instead of a traditional left turn, go three-quarters around before exiting to the right
  • Travel full circle to make a U-turn
  • Use your right turn signal to exit



Dual Lane Roundabout at Rockfish and Golfview

  • As you approach, observe signs and pavement markings to choose the appropriate lane before entering the roundabout
  • Typically, there is one exit lane and one thru lane within the roundabout
  • Stay left to travel through the roundabout halfway or three-quarters of the way around
  • Stay in the left lane as you enter the roundabout and go full circle to make a U-turn
  • Use your right turn signal to exit

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.
