NC 150 Road Widening


Fast Facts

Project # R-2307B
Type: Road widening
Affected Counties: Lincoln, Catawba, Iredell
Estimated Cost: $104,100,000


The NCDOT plans to widen the roughly 15-mile stretch of NC 150 from Mooresville to north of Denver. The project will commence in two phases – R-2307A and B. This page highlights phase B.

Phase B will widen to 4 lanes, a seven-mile section from Harvel Road eastward to just west of the US 21 overpass in Mooresville. (Because funding has been earmarked first for Phase B, that phase will be completed before Phase A.)

The NCDOT will widen the roadway to two lanes in each direction with a raised median-divided superstreet design.

North Carolina is adopting more superstreet designs as the state endeavors to improve heavily traveled roads to try to help alleviate traffic congestion and auto accidents. According to the NCDOT, superstreets have proven to help traffic flow more smoothly and reduce accidents by a significant amount. The design redirects left turns from side streets onto the main street, and no left turns are allowed. Rather, cars must turn right first and then make a U-turn in the designated area, as shown in the diagram below.

Property Takings

It is estimated that more than 270 parcels of property will be impacted by both the A and B sections of the project. Currently the NCDOT has set aside $13,600,000 for right-of-way takings for section B only. 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.
