Improvements to be Made to Three Sections of Shelby Bypass

The U.S. 74 Shelby Bypass project in Cleveland County is broken up into six sections, some of which are already completed. Of the sections that have already been built and graded, three are going to receive upgrades.

Recently, the N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) awarded a $16 million contract to improve three sections of the Shelby Bypass in Cleveland.

This will involve paving and adding pavement markings to portions of the U.S. 74 Shelby Bypass that have already been completed. More specifically these improvements will take place from east of Peachtree Road in Lattimore to east of N.C. 226 in Shelby. Additionally signs, guardrail, and traffic signals will be added to this portion of the bypass.

This work is anticipated to begin as early as April 1.

Several sections of the U.S. 74 Shelby Bypass are still under development, meaning that more land owners could be affected if their property is in the path of the project.

Henson Fuerst currently represents more than three dozen land owners who are affected by the Shelby Bypass, and who are actively involved in litigating against the NC DOT under the Map Act legislation, which has repeatedly been up and down through the appellate courts of North Carolina.

It is important to understand your rights as a property owner. The law requires that the government or condemning agency pay you “just compensation”, but we find in the majority of cases, the offers made by the government fail to be fair to property owners and undervalue properties anywhere from 50-100+% or more.
