NC-111 Road Widening
NCDOT TIP # U-4424
Project Type: Road Widening
Affected Counties: Edgecombe
Estimated Cost: $ 16,997,000
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

It is estimated that this project will impact 80 total properties and more than 60 owners. The NCDOT has budgeted $4,700,000 for right-of-way takings. If your property will be affected, contact one of our attorneys (three of whom previously worked on behalf of the NCDOT) for a free case evaluation.
