News About Town: If you haven’t noticed, Trade Street construction has been moving a little faster lately, and just in time for the Friday morning commute, NCDOT is shifting the traffic pattern. The shift will allow Blythe Development crews to complete structure and roadway work. Eventually, Blythe will widen that portion of Trade Street to four lanes. A concrete median will extend from Weddington Rd. to just past Brenham, preventing left turns to and from Brenham Ln. NCDOT did not release an end date for the traffic shift.
