As part of the I-85 widening project, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will replace the two bridges (No. 21 and 34) over the Norfolk Southern Railroad and US 29/NC 152 in China Grove.

According to NCDOT Bridge Information, Bridge No. 21 over the Norfolk Southern Railway was built in 1936, carries a safety rating of 11 out of 99, and is considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. Bridge No. 34 over US 29/NC 12 was built in 1956, carries a safety rating of 18 out of 99, and is also considered structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

These two bridge replacements are part of the overall 13-mile I-85 widening from Concord to China Grove in Rowan and Cabarrus Counties.

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.
