Explanation

§                     The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) conducted an evaluation of crash history at the intersection of Albemarle Road and Reddman Road.

§                     The evaluation revealed a history of angle crashes for vehicles exiting a driveway immediately west of Reddman Road.
