Preferred Alternative Selected

State Transportation Improvement Program Project No. U-5753

Wayside Road Widening Between Plank Road and U.S. 401

 

The N.C. Department of Transportation has selected the preferred alternative for State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Project No. U-5753 along Wayside Road (S.R. 1305) in Hoke County. 

The proposed project will improve traffic safety and reduce congestion in the area south of Fort Bragg as part of a series of roadway improvements between Fort Bragg and the community of Rockfish.

Concept 1 has been selected as the preferred alternative

Concept 1 will widen Wayside Road to a 4-lane median divided boulevard with shoulders, and includes: 

Realignment of Wayside Road to the east of its current location to meet Plank Road as a “T” intersection
Realignment of Wayside Road at U.S. 401 to meet Lindsay Road as a grade separated interchange over U.S. 401.


Concept 1 was selected after careful review of the environmental impacts associated with each of the project options under consideration, as well as comments received from citizens during the public comment period. 

The N.C. Department of Transportation expects to issue an environmental document for the project in Fall 2019.  The document combines the U-5753 project with STIP Project U-5858 (Lindsay Road).

The currently adopted STIP provides funding for right-of-way acquisition in 2020 and construction in 2022.  These schedules are part of the department’s 10-Year Program and Resource Plan, which is subject to change.

Wayside Road would be realigned at U.S. 401 to meet Lindsay Road as a grade separated interchange over U.S. 401 

Design Concept 2 would widen Wayside Road to a median divided boulevard with curb and gutter 

Wayside Road would be realigned at U.S. 401 to meet Lindsay Road as a grade separated interchange over U.S. 401

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.
