The North Carolina Department of Transportation and City of Mebane propose to widen N.C. 119 between Trollingwood-Hawfields Road/Old Hillsborough Road and Lowes Boulevard.

The project aims to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety by adding an extra travel lane and constructing sidewalks in both directions of the corridor. The plan calls for a center turn lane between Trollingwood-Hawfields Road and Hawfields Middle School Drive, and a concrete median between Hawfields Middle School Drive and Lowes Boulevard.

A map and other details can be found on the NCDOT public meeting webpage.
