R-5813: Interchange Jim Sutton Road and Measley Road

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing to upgrade a portion of U.S. 70 as a four-lane, median-divided freeway with full control of access in Lenoir County. The project begins at N.C. 903 and ends approximately 5500 feet southeast of the intersection with Jim Sutton Road (S.R. 1227)/Willie Measley Road (S.R. 1252). The project includes upgrading the at-grade intersection of U.S. 70 and Jim Sutton Rd /Willie Measley Rd to an interchange.  The proposed project is approximately 2.8 miles and will be a 4-lane, median-divided highway with full control of access.

Areas along U.S. 70 within the project limits with partial access control will be converted to full control-of-access, and service roads will be added as needed.  

Connections to a facility provided only via ramps at interchanges. All cross-streets are grade-separated and no private driveway connections are allowed.  A control of access fence is placed along the entire length of the facility.

The proposed project is listed in the NCDOT 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as Project No. R-5813.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety by reducing conflict points and to provide linkages between freeway portions of US 70 to the west and east of the project area.

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. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
