NC 119 Relocation Project

Fast Facts

Project # U-3109
Type: New roadway
Affected Counties: Alamance
Estimated Cost: $101.9 million
Construction Start Date: October 2015

Description

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is planning to relocate NC 119 in Mebane from I-85 to where NC 119 is currently located near Mrs White Lane (SR 1918) in Alamance County. Transportation officials would like to reroute the road to ease traffic congestion through town. NC 119 currently runs through Mebane along Fifth Street, U.S. 70, Third Street, Graham Street and First Street. The route runs through multiple neighborhoods and the Central Business District.

In addition to being rerouted, NC 119 would also be widened from a mostly two-lane road to a multi-lane roadway.

The NCDOT has said the relocation project would meet the growing traffic needs in the city. If unaddressed, transportation officials say that traffic could contribute to shipping delays, increased accidents, and noise and air pollution.

The project is being broken up into two sections, with Section A running from I-40 to Mebane Rogers Road and Section B running from Mebane Rogers Road to Mrs White Lane (SR 1918). Section B has been scheduled for reprioritization, but new dates have not yet been released.
