New stoplight to be activated Thursday

Staff Report

A new stoplight on CC Camp Road will go live on Thursday, weather permitting, according to officials with the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The light, which was added at the intersection of CC Camp Road and the southbound exit ramp off of U.S. 21 in June, has been on flashing mode for the past few days to alert drivers of its presence.

The contractor, Traffic Control Devices out of Salisbury, is expected to activate the stoplight at some point Thursday, explained a spokesman for the DOT Tuesday morning. This will mean drivers will need to be aware of the new traffic pattern and be prepared to stop at the intersection when the light indicates red.

Daniel Adams, division traffic engineer, explained in June that the company had until Sept. 15 to complete the project, which included linking the new traffic light with those from Walmart to Johnson Ridge Road and changing the light at Johnson Ridge Road from a five-section signal to a four-section signal. The light change at Johnson Ridge Road already has been activated.
