ROUNDABOUT LIKELY COMING TO WHITE STREET IMPROVEMENT/EXTENSION

CHANGES COMING TO HENDERSONVILLE'S WHITE STREET   

The public had a chance to comment late Thursday on NC DOT plans to improve and extend White Street, at a cost of over $12 million.

DOT proposes to realign and extend White Street (S.R. 1170) from Willow Road (S.R. 1171) to U.S. 176 (Spartanburg Highway). Included in this project is replacing bridge over Mud Creek (Bridge 229).

DOT also proposess to widen the bridge over Mud Creek (Bridge 143) to five lanes along N.C. 225 from South King Street to U.S. 176.
Alternate 1 would include adding a roundabout at Kanuga Road and White Street. Alternate 2 would place the roundabout at Kanuga Road and Hebron Road.

Under those plans, White Street would be extended to the Spartanburg Highway. 

Publix has their new supermarket under construction where Atha Plaza used to be, and it's not yet clear when NC DOT will be making a final decision on White Street plans.

The project would cost about $12,670,000.
