DOT working to coordinate lights on Brawley School Road

From the Stateville Record

Press release

Published: April 21, 2010

The N.C. Department of Transportation is working to synchronize the timing of traffic signals on Brawley School Road at the intersections of Mallard Way and Morrison Plantation in Mooresville to help reduce the backups that have been occurring this week.

As of Tuesday afternoon signals were working. Crews will be on site in the morning should any problems arise.

The department encourages motorists to take the following steps to help alleviate overall congestion along this road:

• Car pool when possible

• Use this route only when necessary and during non-peak travel hours

Two sections of Brawley School Road are being widened from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway to help alleviate congestion. The first section is being widened from Williamson Road to Talbert Road and is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2011. The second section is being widened from Williamston Road to east of Winghaven Court and is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2013.

Motorists and residents are encouraged to visit the project's Web site at  to find out general information about the project. Information about daily lane closures can be found under incidents on the project Web site or by visiting

NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit. Know before you go by calling 511, the department's free travel information line, or get real-time travel information on line. NCDOT also offers travel information for motorists and ferry passengers on Twitter.
