Dear Blowing Rock Homeowners,
Last night the Town Council unanimously approved a contract to conduct a traffic study for Green Hill Road.
You voiced concerns and the Town Council listened.
The study will cover Green Hill Road from 321 to Wonderland Road which is within the Town limits. The portion of Green Hill Road to the Blue Ridge Parkway is a DOT road and is not covered by the study.
Mr. Fox reported that the study time line will start in late May and extend through the first or second weeks of July. Consultants will be on site during the summer to observe the seasonal traffic and you will have an opportunity to share specific observations and recommendations.
The scope of the contract includes more than traffic count:
Speed and crash data
Traffic turns into and from Green Hill Road at 321 and Blue Ridge Parkway
Public input via website, email and phone
Presentation at public meeting of Town Council in August
