​Caldwell Street & Morehead Street 

A new traffic signal has been approved by the North Carolina Department of Transportation for installation at the intersection of Caldwell Street and Morehead Street.  The signal is being installed to accommodate existing and future traffic, to provide improved pedestrian and bicycle crossings of Morehead St. and to create better network traffic flow.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be left turn arrows? 

No, the current left turn volume at the intersection does not justify the installation of left turn phases.

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? 

Currently, this signal is unfunded.

Will any additional road construction take place before the signal is installed? 

No

When will the signal be operational? 

Once funding is in place, it is usually 12-18 months before a signal in the Uptown area can be designed and installed.
