Fast Facts

 Roadway widening
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen the 2-mile stretch of NC 279 from north of SR 2275 (Robinson-Clemmer Road), to west of NC 275 in Dallas, NC.  The project will widen the existing lanes to multiple lanes, and is meant to improve traffic flow, safety, and mobility. As part of this project, improvements will also be made to the intersection of NC 275 (Dallas Stanley Highway) and NC 279 (Lower Dallas Highway) in Gaston County, a project formerly known as U-5778.

The widening will likely disrupt the lives of home and business owners along this stretch of the highway. Nearly 30 property owners may even be forced to move to make way for the widened highway.

Project U-2523A, from NC 7 (Ozark Avenue) to north of SR 2275 (Robinson-Clemmer Road), has been completed.
