Current Status

Phase 1 of the improvement project will begin at Bradford Glyn Drive (on the north side of West Wilson), and will continue along the north side the street to Broad Street. West Wilson will remain open for the duration of Phase 1, but there will likely be lane closures to watch for. Additionally, access to the Mooresville Golf Course should not be impacted during Phase I of the project.

Update (8/10/2021)
Storm drainage is currently being installed on the north side of West Wilson Avenue (near Hillside Drive). Traffic in the area should anticipate delays due to the lane closure in that area. There are flaggers in place to help mitigate back-ups.

Update (8/6/2021)
There will be a closure on West Wilson Avenue, between South Broad Street and Academy Street, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (8/9-8/13). This closure is due to ongoing utility work, and there will be flaggers in place. 

Update (7/1/2021)
The contractor has started bringing materials on site, and work on the project is expected to ramp up the week of July 5, starting near Bradford Glyn to install storm structures.

Update (6/7/2021)
Erosion control measures for Phase I were installed. Contractors will be moving equipment and materials to the laydown area and will be begin the tree work. Utilities should finish their relocation process by June 18.

Update (4/23/2021)
The Town is in the process of placing message boards and signs along West Wilson Avenue in preparation of the project's starting date.

Project overview and goals


The West Wilson Avenue Improvement Project starts at Glynwater Drive and ends at Broad Street. The improvements will include new curb, storm drainage, and a concrete pedestrian path along West Wilson Avenue. The pedestrian pathway will start at Glynwater Drive at 10 feet wide, and transition to eight-foot wide at Hillside Drive, and down to a five-foot wide sidewalk at Academy Street. It will also include two bridges that will assist users over the creek.

Two traffic signals will be also added in the project, one at West Wilson and Lowrance Avenues, and the other at West Wilson Avenue and Academy Street. The estimated cost for this improvement project is $4.62 million.
