Interchange Improvements
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to make improvements to the I-85/South Main Street interchange in Archdale.

Proposed improvements include reconfiguring the interchange to a diverging diamond design, and adding a raised median and sidewalks on Main Street from Columbus Avenue to Commanche Road.

The NCDOT has proposed two alternative designs. In one alternative, a new Frontage Road is also proposed, which would extend west from Balfour Drive between businesses, ending at Main Street with a new signal near the US Post Office.

The purpose of this project is to reduce congestion along Main Street, especially at the I-85 interchange ramps, as well as to improve traffic safety.

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.
