US 17 Superstreet (Washington Acres Rd. to Sloop Point Loop Rd.)
Project # U-5732
Affected Counties: Pender
Estimated Cost: $23,714,000
The North Carolina Department of Transportation plans to make major changes to the 5.5-mile stretch of US 17 from Washington Acres Road to Sloop Point Loop Road in Hampstead. Changes include:
- Revising the northern interchange to improve safety and access and to reduce impacts
- Relocating the mid-town interchange to Hoover Road, which will give South Topsail Elementary School a second entrance and exit and ease congestion to Hoover Road and US 17
The project will begin with an interchange at NC 210 before extending northeast and crossing Hoover Road. Construction will continue northeast behind Topsail Elementary School and veer east to connect with US 17 near Leeward Lane. From Leeward Lane the project continues north to Sloop Point Road on the current US 17 route.
US 17 along this route will be reconstructed as a superstreet.
