Description

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to improve a 1.25-mile section of U.S. 19/74/64/129 from about three-quarters of a mile southwest of Murphy to Hiwassee Street near the First Baptist Church.

Improvements could involve increasing lane widths, adding turn lanes, raising medians, and removing driveways. More than 35 property owners will be affected by these changes.

It is estimated that more than 35 parcels of the property will be impacted by this project. Currently, the NCDOT has set aside $1,460,000 for right-of-way takings. If your property will be affected, contact one of our attorneys (four of whom previously worked on behalf of the NCDOT) for a free case evaluation.

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.
