NOVEMBER 4, 2022 UPDATE
The Town of Cary has advised us that the contract is in place to begin installation of traffic calming devices along Loch Highlands Drive. Residents should be seeing construction cones very soon. This will be the culmination of a formal five-year effort to reduce speeding and improve safety along the roadway.
The traffic calming measures include:
- Raised crosswalk at the playground greenway path
- Five speed humps along Loch Highlands Drive
- New, improved signage
- Radar speed signs will remain in place
The Town of Cary is covering all of the costs for these improvements. There will be no special assessments or additional fees.
Please be careful as you drive through the construction areas.
Please visit www.lochmere.org and check the Ad Hoc Traffic Committee’s web page for additional information and updates.
If you would like to see a map of the project showing the locations for the traffic calming devices, please visit the Town of Cary’s website as follows:

DECEMBER 12, 2022 UPDATE
The Ad Hoc Committee is happy to report that the Town of Cary work has started on Loch Highlands Drive.
During construction of the speed humps, a flagger will at times direct traffic along alternating, one-lane traffic flow.
While the crosswalk is being installed, the portion of the greenway by the playground leading down the hill and connecting to Kildaire Farm Road may be closed. If people want to go north on Kildaire Farm Road, they will need to stay on Loch Highlands Drive to the Kildaire Farm Road intersection and turn right.
Residents need to be extra safety-minded during this process.
