NC 211 Road Widening

Fast Facts

NCDOT TIP: R – 5021
Project Type: Road Widening
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $63,525,000


In an effort to ease traffic flow and with an eye toward continued growth, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will begin widening an approximately seven-mile section of N.C. 211 between Midway Road (SR 1500) on the western part of Oak Island and St. James to N.C. 87 at Southport.

For cost purposes and to avoid having to move additional homes and businesses, two lanes will be added on the north side of the roadway, despite some residents’ concerns over wetlands and habitat issues. Some had argued that building on the north side would disrupt the area’s natural wetlands, which can be flood-prone, and where the red-cockaded woodpecker makes its home. While the NCDOT did agree to try and minimize the environmental impact, building on the south side would have been too costly.

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.
