Beverly Crest Boulevard and Candlewyck Lane & Providence Road
A new traffic signal has been approved by the North Carolina
Department of Transportation for installation at the intersection of Beverly
Crest Boulevard and Candlewyck Lane and Providence Road. The signal is being installed to accommodate
existing and future left turning traffic, reduce rear end crashes on Beverly
Crest Blvd. during the morning peak, provide an improved pedestrian and bicycle
crossing of Providence Rd., better coordinate traffic flow on Providence Rd.
and to reduce the number of angle crashes at the intersection.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be left turn arrows?
Yes, left turn phases will be installed for Providence Rd.
Will there be crosswalks and pedestrian signals?
Yes, crosswalks and pedestrian signals will be installed for crossing all legs of the intersection.
Where is the money for the signal coming from?
The signal is being funded by Meritage Homes who is building the new Vizcaya subdivision development which is just north of the intersection.
Will any additional road construction take place before the signal is installed?
No, the signal will be installed using the current intersection geometry. The possibility of striping two approach lanes on the Candlewyck side was looked at but the width was deemed too narrow to accommodate two lanes.
When will the signal be operational?
An exact date is difficult to determine due to the variables involved. However, the plan is to have the signal operational before Thanksgiving 2017. Revised 10/13/17: CDOT
is currently waiting for a commitment date from Duke Energy on when the poles
will be installed. When that information
is received a more accurate installation date can be estimated.
