PURPOSE                                          

This project has multiple goals including:

  • Alleviate existing and future congestion
  • Improve regional mobility
  • Improve reliability of the roadway network within the study area
  • Upgrade the corridor consistent with local government visions
  • Provide connectivity between local community and local destinations
  • Reduce congestion-related accidents
  • Improve connections to existing and proposed bicycle and pedestrian facilities

As the project progresses and the environmental document is prepared, a more refined project purpose and need statement will be developed.

PLANNING PROCESS

 NCDOT's project development/planning process includes evaluation of :

  • Traffic
  • Cultural resources
  • Congestion
  • Natural resources 
  • Human environment 
  • Community resources
  • Roadway options
  • Other issues in the project study area

NCDOT is studying potential impacts to people in the communities, the natural environment, and other factors as part of the alternative development process, with the intent to minimize impacts whenever possible.

Part of the project planning process is a Navigation Impact Report – the US Coast Guard requires all interested parties to submit comments.   A copy of the Preliminary Public Notice D05PPN-06-2022, which describes the proposal in detail, can be obtained by calling (757) 398-6557 or by viewing at https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=pnBridges. Comments on this proposal should be forwarded to the address in the notice no later than August 26th, 2022.

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.
