MT. AIRY, N.C. -- Transportation officials hosted a public information meeting about one of the most busiest and dangerous roads in Mount Airy Thursday.

Rockford Street, between U.S. Highway 29 and Forrest Drive, has seen more than 240 car accidents since 2012, three of which were deadly.

Leaders think a 20-foot median and restricting crossing U-turns will help reduce crashes and increase safety.

David Uchiyama with the Department of Transportation says this plan takes away the possibility of head on crashes as well as t-bone crashes.

Leaders say the entire project will cost almost $7 million.

If you missed Thursday night's meeting, transportation leaders are taking comments by phone or email before April 27.
