The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting Thursday, Oct. 13, in Watauga County to receive comments for a proposed widening project to improve U.S. 321/U.S. 421 west of Boone.

The purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow, mobility, and safety for all users. The public meeting will take place from 4-7 p.m. at Brushy Fork Baptist Church, 3915 U.S. 421. No formal presentation will be made. NCDOT staff and consultants will be on hand to answer questions and receive comments. The project, which will stretch from U.S. 321 to the N.C. 105 Bypass near Old Bristol Road, will widen the highway from a single lane to two lanes in each direction separated by a 30-foot median with paved 5-foot-wide shoulders.

The estimated cost of the project is $92.6 million. Right-of-way acquisition is scheduled to begin in 2024 with construction following in 2027.
