Conceptual Corridors

The U.S. 70 project (U-5720) is in the early stages of development.  At the public meetings on October 30 and November 1, 2018, concepts for the main roadway (U.S. 70) and options being considered and examined for intersections along the corridor were provided for public review and comment. 

The study area shown is a broad survey area and is not intended to reflect any level of potential impacts. Direct impacts from the proposed project will be contained within the study area, but not all properties within the study area will be impacted

Three Widening Concepts (north, south and upgrade existing) were considered for the improvement of U.S. 70. In the northern and southern widening concepts, a portion of the existing U.S. 70 would be retained as a service road providing access to adjacent land uses.

In addition, NCDOT is considering two design options for the proposed Sherron Road/South Miami Boulevard interchange: Option A - a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) or Option B - a Tight Diamond Interchange.  Graphic depictions of these and the roadway concepts are shown below.

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.
