Fast Facts

Project # R-2530B
Type: Road Widening
Affected Counties: Stanly
Estimated Cost: $45,100,000


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen a 7.1-mile stretch of NC 24-27 from NC 740 in the town of Albemarle to the proposed Troy Bypass west of Troy.

This project involves widening existing NC 24-27 from west of NC 740 to the Pee Dee River from either two or three-lane sections of highway to a four-lane divided highway. It will include a median from east of Sweet Home Church Road (SR 1731) to the Pee Dee River. Beginning as a 23-foot-wide raised median, it will transition to a 46-foot depressed median as it nears the Pee Dee River.
