NC-111 Road Widening

Fast Facts

NCDOT TIP # U-4424
Project Type:
Road Widening
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


In May of 2019, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) held a public meeting on a project proposing to widen NC-111 (Wilson Street) by adding a third, center, lane from US 64 Alternate (Westen Boulevard) to NC 122 (McNair Road) in Edgecombe County. Construction is scheduled to start in Fiscal Year 2023.

The proposed two-way center center lane would extend the 2.3 miles between Western Blvd and McNair Road. The NCDOT claims that an open center lane on a three-lane road improves travel flow and safety, allowing drivers to pull out of the travel lane to make a left turn.

This project will impact 80 properties and more than 60 owners – primarily homeowners along the route who will have their front yards and driveways disturbed by the construction. If you are one of these property owners, we urge you to take action now and call us at 877-393-4990 for a free case evaluation.



  • Right-of-way acquisition – 2021
  • Start Construction – 2022
  • End Construction – 2024

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.
