The project to widen Big Mill Farm Road and Hopkins Road in Kernersville is moving forward. It will extend 2 miles from Harmon Creek Road all the way to West Mountain Street. The existing thoroughfare will be widened to four lanes to increase traffic flow, and a new interchange built at the junction of Big Mill Farm Road and US 421/I-40 Business. The NCDOT projects a budget of more than $57 million.
The property required for the project now lands in the sights of the NCDOT, which may commence eminent domain actions against more than 130 parcels in the path. Home and business owners may find that some or a large portion of their property is being taken. Even if they do not lose it all, a small taking can drastically change how the land can be used and affect its future value and usability.
As a property owner along the path of this project, understand that the NCDOT can take your property – even if you do not want to sell. We highly advise consulting with an experienced eminent domain attorney so you can understand your rights, the eminent domain process, and how you can fight for just compensation for the property the state is taking from you.

It is estimated that this project will impact more than 130 parcels of property. Currently, the NCDOT has set aside almost $5,000,000 for right-of-way takings.

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.
