Construction is starting on connecting Sportsmanship Way with N.C. 55 at Ting Park, adding cross-town road connectivity to improve traffic flow.
Completion is expected in spring 2020.
The project will provide a second point of access to the park. Currently, the only way in and out of Ting Park is by North Main Street.
- Entering Ting Park - Drivers will be able to turn left and right from N.C. 55 to enter the park.
- Leaving Ting Park - Drivers exiting the park will be able to turn right onto the highway and either continue north toward Old Smithfield Road or make a U-turn at a superstreet intersection to head south toward Holly Springs Road. The superstreet intersection design will allow for the safest and most efficient traffic flow.
Construction will occur between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. outside morning and evening rush hours. The project will not alter the activities schedule at Ting Park.
