The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to improve the interchange at Carthage Road (Exit 19) in Lumberton. Construction is part of the NCDOT’s plans to widen I-95 and improve the general quality of the roads, including increasing safety and alleviating traffic congestion.

Carthage Road is considered the main entry to downtown Lumberton. Upgrades to this thoroughfare involve bringing the interchange into conformance with the latest safety standards and making the necessary improvements so it can better handle traffic flow when I-95 is widened to eight lanes in 2026.

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.
