Work is set to begin soon on the U-5987 (“Unionville-Indian Trail Road and Sardis Church Road Intersection Improvement Project”). The Town’s goal was to complete this project last summer, but due to the FAST Act process (the project is partially funded with federal dollars) and utility conflicts it was delayed. It also experienced a funding hold late last year which prompted an additional delay.
In the past month, funding has been reinstated, and Indian Trail’s Engineering Department plans to advertise for the project in February with a goal of construction beginning in March.
The road will remain open through the initial phase of work, which will focus on utility construction (water and sewer). Once the school year ends, the intersection will be closed, and construction will begin on the roundabout. The road will remain closed until school begins again in August.
An official start date for the project will be provided closer to time. View the map below for detours once the intersection is closed.
