Type: New Road
Affected Counties: Montgomery
Estimated Cost: $49,763,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) proposed this nearly $50 million project to create a bypass on NC Hwy 24-27 around Troy, North Carolina.
The Troy Bypass will be built on the south side of Troy from SR 1138 and rejoin the existing portion of 24-27 east of Little River.
According to the NCDOT, the purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow and prepare for future traffic increases.
The Troy Bypass will be a four-lane highway, according to the Montgomery Herald. The NCDOT is also planning to widen parts of 24-27 to handle the traffic increases, but that project (R-2527) is currently scheduled for reprioritization.
