As the amount of people in Mebane continues to increase, so does the amount of cars on the road. This means that congestion, specifically in downtown Mebane, will only increase as well. By 2025, the current route of N.C. 119 will be unable to meet traffic demands and would mean longer delays for motorists.
Therefore, NCDOT has been developing plans for the N.C. 119 Relocation Project which is intended to help relieve congestion in downtown Mebane in Alamance County.
Right of way acquisition for Section A of this project began in 2015 and construction began in June 2017. Section A begins at the I-85/40 and N.C. 119 interchange and follows the existing road alignment for about 0.36 miles. The route then turns northward onto a new location, passing to the west of the West End community and over the North Carolina Railroad tracks and U.S. 70 (West Center Street). The alternative then turns northwest around Craftique Furniture and ends east of Woodlawn Road.
Right of way acquisition for Section B of this project is set to begin in 2020. Section B is the final phase of the project. It begins just east of Woodlawn Road and continues east before heading northeast and passing through a corner of the historic Cates Farm property as well as through the critical watershed boundary area of the Graham-Mebane Reservoir. The road ties back into existing N.C. 119 near Mrs. White Lane.

It is important to understand your rights as a property owner.

We regularly see government appraisals that severely undervalue properties anywhere from 50-100+% or more!
