The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will construct an interchange at Weddington Road (SR 3468) and I-485 between exits 52 and 57 in Matthews.

Part of the Charlotte Southern Outer Loop extending from west of I-77 to US 74, the Weddington Road interchange will be designed as a folded-diamond style interchange with all four ramps located on the eastern side of the existing bridge over I-485.

The eastbound (outer) ramps are proposed to intersect Weddington Road directly opposite Plantation Center Drive.

Property Takings

More than 15 parcels of land will be impacted by this project. Currently the NCDOT has set aside $6,100,000 for right-of-way takings. If your property will be affected, contact one of our attorneys (four of whom previously worked on behalf of the NCDOT) for a free case evaluation.

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.
