Pinehurst considers updates to traffic circle

The traffic circle is considered both a centerpiece of Pinehurst and a bottleneck to traffic. It was designed in 1956. It is a 600-foot circle with a 30 mph speed limit. On Tuesday, the Pinehurst Village Council heard a presentation on upcoming changes to the traffic circle. The N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has been working on making changes since 2013. The original study presented 10 alternatives to the community in 2018. None of these were considered acceptable, so NCDOT returned to the drawing board.
