US 401 (Raeford Road) Roadway Improvements

Fast Facts

Project Type: 
Affected Counties:
Estimated Cost: $


The NCDOT plans roadway improvements to a 5.8-mile stretch of US 401 (Raeford Road) from west of Hampton Oaks Drive to east of Fairway Drive in Fayetteville.

Improvements include road widening, and resurfacing with a raised median, and are deemed necessary to help improve traffic flow and safety.

As Fayetteville has grown, increased traffic volumes have created congestion. Moreover, access onto and from this section of US 401 has become a safety and nuisance issue, as numerous driveways along the corridor hinder both mobility and traffic safety.

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.
