Asheboro Southern Bypass

Fast Facts

Project # R-2536
Type:Roadway improvements
Affected Counties: Randolph
Estimated Cost: $369,635,000


This project is designed to create a bypass around Asheboro. The bypass will be four lanes wide with controlled access. This means there are no driveways. The bypass will be 16.4 miles in length. The opposite direction of travel will be separated by a landscaped median.

The total right-of-way width along the highway will be about 300 feet with additional area needed at interchange locations for ramps. The interchanges are located at both ends of the project on US 64, NC 49, US 220 bypass, NC 159 and NC 42.

As part of the bypass, the NCDOT (North Carolina Department of Transportation) also recommends improving access to the North Carolina Zoo. The new road to the North Carolina Zoo will be two lanes wide and undivided. A new interchange will be built on the US 64 bypass at the Zoo Connector when the connector road is built.

The project is split up into five sections: R-2536AA, R-2536AB, R-2536B, R-2536C and R-2536D. Section AA spans from U.S. 64 west of Asheboro to north of NC 49. Section AB is from north of NC 49 to west of the US 220 bypass. Sections B, C and D have not been given final parameters.

According to the NCDOT, the purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and levels of service on U.S. 64, reduce congestion and improve safety on US 64, enhance high speed regional travel on US 64, and improve access to the North Carolina Zoo.

There are only a handful of attorneys in NC who practice eminent domain exclusively, and even fewer with NCDOT experience. We have several. That’s why its worth getting in touch with us for a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
