Project Update

Since the 2019 public meetings, Map 5: Cedar Grove Church Road, Great Marsh Church Road & N.C. 20/Broad Street (Exit 31) has been modified to include the below changes to Oak Ridge Road. 

NCDOT is proposing to build a new service road, which includes widening and paving of Oak Ridge Road and extending that road onto a new location at the southwest quadrant of the I-95/N.C. 20 interchange (Exit 31 - Map 5). The reconstruction of Oak Ridge Road is needed to accommodate the new realignment of the southbound entrance ramp and proposed roundabout at the Exit 31 interchange while maintaining access to an existing cellular tower and residential property.


The new service road would:

  • Utilize existing unpaved segments of Oak Ridge Road and Piper Road

  • Include a road section on new location


The reconstruction of Oak Ridge Road would include:

  • Two 12-foot paved travel lanes with four-foot shoulder within a 60-foot right of way 

The proposed Oak Ridge Road alignment was selected to minimize impacts to homes, businesses, and Oak Ridge Cemetery. It is anticipated that no grave sites will be affected by the proposed service road relocation. The relocation of Oak Ridge Road will also not result in additional impacts to jurisdictional stream, wetland, or pond features.

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.
