Fast Facts

Project # R-3830
Type: Road Widening
Affected Counties: Lee
Estimated Cost: $35,718,000


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen a 5.4-mile section of Broadway Road (NC 42) from the town of Sanford to Broadway in Lee County. The new four-lane road will begin where Horner Boulevard intersects Broadway Road in Sanford and end at East Harrington Avenue in Broadway.

There are numerous intersections along this stretch of roadway and many accidents have occurred as a result of left turns. Because traffic is expected to double by 2040, the new highway will all but eliminate left turns at intersections without traffic signals. Instead the NCDOT plans to install U-turn lanes with

A sidewalk will also be installed on one side of the new roadway.


DOT is gearing up to widen NC 42 East
