Rogers Lake Road Railroad Crossing Bridge

Fast Facts

Project # Y-4810K
Type: Railroad crossing bridge
Affected Counties: Cabarrus
Estimated Cost: At least $12.6 Million


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to build a bridge over Main Street, the railroad track, and Ridge Avenue in Kannapolis.

The purpose of the bridge is to help improve traffic flow, safety, as well as efficiency of train traffic by removing the existing Rogers Lake Road at-grade railroad crossing and replacing it with a bridge.

This is an effort to try to reduce vehicle-train collisions and horn noise as well as improve traffic flow by eliminating the need for cars to stop at railroad crossings while trains pass through.

This project is part of an overall effort across North Carolina to reduce the number of redundant and/or unsafe rail-highway at-grade crossings. Additionally, the NCDOT is adding two daily round-trip trains between Raleigh and Charlotte, for a total of five. This project is expected to help further support this increase.

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.
