NC 87 Bypass and US 701 Overpass (Elizabethtown)
NCDOT TIP # R-4903
Project Type: New interchange
Affected Counties: Bladen
Estimated Cost: $14,685,000
The NCDOT is planning to construct an overpass along US 701 over NC 87 Bypass in Elizabethtown.
This will allow traffic driving along US 701 to pass over NC 87 Bypass uninterrupted.
Overpasses are typically built for safety and efficiency reasons, as they eliminate large intersections, like the US 701 and NC 87 Bypass interchange, which is where accidents often occur.
