R-5814: U.S. 258 Widening

PROJECT OVERVIEW AND PURPOSE

The N.C. Department of Transportation proposes to widen U.S. 258 from approximately 0.5 mile south of Browntown Road (S.R. 1101) to N.C. 148 (C.F. Harvey Parkway) in Greene and Lenoir Counties to a four-lane median divided roadway.

Once complete, the project will help improve safety for the traveling public, as well as improve regional connectivity for passenger vehicles and truck freight.

RESOURCES FOR PROPERTY OWNERS


Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
