DURHAM, N.C., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The N.C. Department of Transportation is currently contacting property owners who will be affected by construction of the Goldsboro bypass in Wayne County, and the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm is meeting with property owners to discuss potential cases related to these land condemnation proceedings.
Construction of the U.S. 70 Corridor has been broken down into four parts, including the Goldsboro Bypass. The project, labeled #R-2554 (BB) by the N.C. DOT, will run from west of SR 1714 to east of SR 1556. The bypass will involve construction of a new 20.6-mile stretch of four-lane freeway.
Construction has been partially completed, and is scheduled to continue through 2012. Right-of-way acquisitions are currently in progress to take the property that will be needed to complete the project.
Budget for the project is estimated at $45 million.
Officials with the N.C. DOT are currently contacting property owners to complete eminent domain proceedings for those properties that will be affected by the construction.
"In my experience, the government may try to secure property for the lowest amount it can – just like any other buyer. Therefore, the government's offer for your property may not always reflect its true value," said Stan Abrams, the lead attorney at the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm, who has experience litigating eminent domain cases on behalf of the government. "Not all experts agree on the value of real estate, and property owners may need advocates fighting for their interests to help them try to get the most compensation they can for their property."
