Project Overview

The N.C. Department of Transportation is proposing roadway improvements at the intersection of Olde South Road (S.R. 1382) and Penny Road (S.R. 1379).  The purpose of this project is to relieve congestion and improve traffic operations to an acceptable level of service.  The project proposes to install a signal and construct left turn lanes in both directions on Penny Road. The proposed typical section at the intersection will remain the same as existing.

Project History 

The Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law includes a provision for a funding allocation to local governments based on funding contributed by the local government to transportation projects or revenue from tolling. This bonus allocation can be used to fund the construction of other eligible highway projects.

Early in 2020, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) received notice from NCDOT that there would be a bonus allocation to CAMPO from the N.C. 540 (toll road) project. This project, on Olde Stage Road, was one of several selected by CAMPO for the bonus allocation funding. NCDOT began project development work for the project in early 2021.

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.
