to access businesses on Conlan Circle, including the ability to make a U-turn on Brixham Hill Avenue. This change is designed to ease traffic congestion and improve safety. 3. Additional Turn Lanes: 521/Johnston Road, Ballantyne Commons Parkway Dual left-turn lanes are being created in both directions of Ballantyne Commons Parkway at the intersection with 2 portions of John J. Delaney Drive to make locating business addresses easier. John J. Delaney Drive in Ballantyne Corporate Park will be renamed Brixham Hill Avenue from Johnston Road to Ballantyne Corporate Place. The southern portion of John J. Delaney Drive in the corporate park will be renamed Ballantyne Medical Place. The southeast portion of John J. Delaney Drive behind Ballantyne Commons East will remain John J. Delaney Drive. The city and county will notify emergency services, the post office, utilities, property owners and city/ county departments. The post office will automatically fill out a change-of-address form and recognize both addresses for a year. 1. New Intersection at Brixham Hill Avenue A new intersection is under WINTER 2012-2013 construction in Ballantyne Corporate Park that will make three changes to enhance traffic flow. Drivers turning left from Brixham Hill Avenue going toward U.S. 521/Johnston Road will be able to drive through the intersection without having to stop. Motorists on Ballantyne Medical Place making a right or left turn onto Brixham Hill Avenue will be required to stop. Cars traveling west on Brixham Hill Avenue from 521 and wishing to turn left on Ballantyne Medical Place will be required to yield. The entrance to Staybridge Suites Charlotte Ballantyne will be relocated. 2. Entrance Changes at Conlan Circle Drivers entering Ballantyne Corporate Park from 521/ Johnston Road will be unable to turn left on Conlan Circle. Instead, they will have four other options 521/Johnston Road to enhance traffic flow. The N.C. Department of Transportation is constructing a second right-turn lane on Johnston Road at the intersection of Brixham Hill Avenue (formerly John J. Delaney Drive), at the light across from The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge. This additional lane will ease congestion during commuting hours into the corporate park. 4. North Community House Road and Ballantyne Commons Parkway Construction is underway on North Community House Road making it four lanes and adding dual left-turn lanes with signals at all corners of the intersection with Ballantyne Commons Parkway, except when turning left from Ballantyne 4 Commons on Community House Road North (toward the Morrison Family YMCA). The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. Improvements are in anticipation of the North Community House Road Bridge over I-485 project to be constructed in the near future.
