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.
Comments may be submitted via phone, email or U.S. Mail to either of the individuals listed below or at any meeting. All comments received carry equal weight, regardless of submittal method. All comments will be reviewed and suggestions/recommendations incorporated into designs where feasible.
