Downtown Development Brings Traffic Pattern Changes

For safer, more efficient flow, two blocks of Ballentine Street converted to one-way traffic. Rogers Street extended one-way in opposite direction. These changes are anticipated during the week of October 14.

One WayBecoming One-Way 

Ballentine Street reopens as one-way street heading east, uphill toward Raleigh Street on these blocks only:

  • Avent Ferry Road to Main Street (Beside Town Hall)
  • Main Street to Raleigh Street (Beside Village Office Condos)

Why This is Happening 


With the new offices, stores and restaurants coming to South Main, these blocks of Ballentine are not wide enough to safely and efficiently accommodate two travel directions, on-street parking, and pedestrians.

Coming Early 2019


New town-controlled traffic light at intersection of Main & Ballentine streets to optimize traffic flow.


Closing Permanently 

  • Portion of Raleigh Street behind Car Wash (200 feet of roadway between Rogers Street & Grigsby Avenue) 

Why This is Happening 

  • Remove the problematic ‘K-intersection’ formed by Main Street, Raleigh Street and Grigsby Avenue in order to improve roadway and pedestrian safety.
  • Accommodate realignment of Rogers Street to extend westward across Main Street, providing access to new downtown parking deck. 

Closing Temporarily to Thru Traffic

  • Rogers Street (Between Main Street & Grigsby Avenue) 
  • Reopening of Rogers Street between Main Street and Grigsby Avenue anticipated by end of year.

Why This is Happening

  • Convert existing block of Rogers to one-way to safely accommodate on-street parking.
  • Realign Rogers Street for extension across South Main to Avent Ferry Road.

Coming Late 2018/Early 2019


West Rogers Street extension from Main Street to Avent Ferry Road as a one-way street running parallel to Ballentine Street in opposite direction.
