I-85 Highway Widening
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is adding four additional travel lanes and other improvements to Interstate 85 in Cabarrus and Rowan Counties.
When completed, it is hoped that this more than 13-mile, eight-lane stretch of I-85 will help make travel more efficient, less congested, and potentially safer for travelers and those who regularly commute between Charlotte and Greensboro.
This project will be built in two sections:
The plans also include upgrading several interchanges – at US 29/601, Dale Earnhardt Boulevard, Lane Street, and NC 152.
Maps of Section I-3802B
The NCDOT has set aside $38,000,000 for right-of-way acquisitions. Property takings for Section A have been completed. Section B commenced October 2106 (see Section I-3802B below).
This over 7-mile section begins just north of NC 73 (Exit 55) and extends to Lane Street (Exit 63) and ends just north of Moose Road in Rowan County. It is nearly completed.
Estimated Cost of I-3802A: $107,346,000
Property Takings began in 2014 for Section I-3802A.
This more than 6-mile section picks up at Moose Road just north of Lane Street (Exit 63) and extends just past the US 29-601 connector (Exit 68) in Rowan County.
Estimated Cost of I-3802B: $185,919,000
More than 45 properties are likely to be affected. Currently the NCDOT has set aside $16,353,000 for right-of-way takings for Section B. If your property will be affected, contact one of our attorneys (four of whom previously represented the NCDOT) for a free case evaluation, or call 1-877-393-4990.
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.
