​Erwin Road and Steele Creek Road

A new traffic signal has been approved by the North Carolina Department of Transportation for installation at the intersection of Erwin Road and Steele Creek Road (NC 160).  The signal is being installed to accommodate existing traffic and to reduce the number of angle type crashes. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be a left turn arrow? 

Yes.  A left turn phase will be installed for the southbound left turn.

Will there be any crosswalks and pedestrian signals? 

No.  Crosswalks and pedestrian signals will be added when curb, gutter and sidewalks are built at 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? 

Ideally, a southbound left turn lane will be constructed on Steele Creek in advance of the signal.  Funding availability may necessitate the installation of the signal without the left turn lane. 

When will the signal be operational? 

If the left turn lane is funded, this signal installation will quickly follow the installation of the left turn lane.  If the left turn lane is not funded, it normally takes 9-12 months from when the signal is funded to installation.
