N.C. 107 Roadway Upgrade
NCDOT TIP # R-4753
Project Type: Roadway Upgrade
Affected Counties: Jackson
Estimated Cost: $ 18,600,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will begin upgrading a 4.04-mile section of N.C. 107. Construction will take place just north of Old Cullowhee Road (SR 1002) to N.C. 281, an area which mostly meanders along the Tuckasegee River, with the southern portion passing through Tuckasegee.
Supporters hope this project will provide a wider, smoother, and safer ride by widening lane and shoulder widths, improving intersections, and realigning specific areas of N.C. 107.
However, some are concerned about the potential impacts on the area's infrastructure. In Jackson County, this project and other expansions will be affecting businesses, land, and home owners.
