Project History

The section of Dabney Drive (S.R. 1162) from Coble Boulevard to U.S. 158 Business has been the subject of long-range planning at both the state and local level, including:

  • The Vance County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) states Dabney Drive (S.R. 1162) is a thoroughfare that needs improvement to relieve existing congestion. The CTP recommends providing a one-way pair facility (two-lanes in each direction) from U.S. 158 Business to Cooper Drive, utilizing Corbitt Road to carry westbound traffic.

NCDOT, in collaboration with the City of Henderson and other stakeholders, has begun the planning and design of the proposed project. NCDOT is currently collecting information within the project study area for inclusion in the environmental document.

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.
