 Road facility upgrade
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to widen 9.6 miles of Prison Camp Road in Williamston from NC 903 to East College Road (SR 1182). Widening will include 12-foot lanes and eight-foot shoulders from NC 903 to just west of Allen Williams Road (SR 1141). The road will also be shifted slightly to improve curvature in some locations. From Allen Williams Road to East College Road, a three-lane curb and gutter cross section is proposed with 12-foot lanes and a 10-foot berm behind the curb.

A five-year traffic study showed that this stretch of Prison Camp Road has a crash rate higher than the statewide average. The predominant crash type involved vehicles running off of the road. The project’s purpose is to improve safety and traffic conditions on Prison Camp Road, as well as to fix inadequate shoulder width, unpaved shoulders, and substandard ditches and drainage.

The state hopes that these improvements will reduce the potential for these types of crashes by improving road shoulders and realigning three of the sharp curves on the southwestern portion of the project.

Approximately 20 properties are affected by this project – including three historically eligible properties and two cemeteries.

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.
