US-220 Business Widening

Fast Facts

NCDOT TIP # U-6006
Type: Road widening
Affected Counties: Randolph
Estimated Cost: $10,380,000


A delayed road widening project will begin soon on U.S. 220 Business (South Main Street) in Asheboro and Randleman. The current stretch of highway will be widened to a four-lane divided roadway extending from Caudle Road (SR 2123) to U.S. 311 Extension (SR 2270) in Randleman. Approximately 0.7 miles of roadway will be widened under the project.

Purported benefits of the project include reduced congestion and improved mobility, with a secondary benefit of reducing crashes and improving safety. While the widened roadway will have sidewalks and allow cars and bicycles to share the road, it will come at the expense of nearby landowners. More than 70 parcels of adjoining land will be subject to eminent domain taking by the NCDOT.
