Camden Road Project

Fast Facts

Project # U-2810B
Type: Roadway Widening
Affected Counties: Cumberland
Estimated Cost: $13.6 Million


The widening project (#U-2810B) is the second part of a larger project that is to widen Camden Road from the Hope Mills bypass to Oakland Avenue. The project will include widening the road to four lanes for the 1.1 mile stretch and replacing a 60-year-old weight-limited bridge to a railroad bridge.

This widening project is a part of the two-year project that began in January 2013. According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) engineer, having construction equipment visible from the road will begin to have an effect on traffic, even before lanes are closed.

A third and final phase of Camden Road widening project (U-2810C) will begin before this section of the project ends, adding more disruption to the approximately 14,000 vehicles a day that cross the old bridge (according to 2010 traffic count). The final phase of the project will widen the two miles from Oakland Avenue to Owen Drive.
