After some delays, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has signaled that the widening of a 15.4 mile stretch of NC 211 will begin in the fall of 2021 with right-of-way acquisition. Construction is scheduled to start in 2023. For property owners in the path of the project, that means the clock is ticking.
NCDOT was having public meetings as far back as 2019 to discuss the project, transforming NC 211 between Mockingbird Hill Road (SR 1311) in Raeford and West Palmer Street (SR 1244) in Aberdeen into a four-lane divided highway. The project proposes a raised median in Moore County and a depressed median in Hoke County, and includes new bridges to circumvent at-grade railroad crossings.
Owners of more than seventy homes and businesses will be displaced by the project, and a handful of churches along the project’s route will be significantly impacted as well. Many more property owners may be affected by the way the project brings the highway closer to their front doors or changes the flow of traffic. Left turns will be limited, meaning most properties will require right-in, right-out access.
You do not need to wait for the NCDOT to come knocking to take action. If you own a property affected by R-5709, call us at 1-877-393-4990 or contact us online. We will evaluate your case for free. Furthermore, we give our clients a no-fee guarantee.
- Right-of-way acquisition – Fall 2021
- Start Construction – 2023
- End Construction – TBD
It is estimated that this project will impact more than 400 parcels of property. Currently, the NCDOT has set aside more than $54,000,000 for right-of-way takings.
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.
