White Street Realignment & Extension Upgrades
NCDOT TIP # U-5886
Project Type: Realignment and extension upgrade
Affected Counties: Henderson
Estimated Cost: $ 35,240,000
The project area is situated in the central portion of Henderson County, approximately one mile southwest of downtown Hendersonville. The area has seen an increase in traffic partly due to the new South Market Village development, located at the eastern half of the project area at the intersection of White Street and South Main Street/Greenville Highway/NC 225.
The roadway realignment and widening project aims to help alleviate growing traffic issues and to provide safer bike and pedestrian connectivity, but may cause significant problems to those owners along the project.
The project encompasses the construction of new connector roads from US-176 to White Street, road widening, and intersection improvements. The area has many commercial properties and businesses which will be affected along its eastern section. On the western side, there are many residences in the path of development, and those homes could be severely affected. Unless the current plans are changed, as many as a dozen owners will have to relocate their homes or businesses. If you own property that will be affected by this project, contact the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm as soon as possible.
