As we reported in a previous blog, The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is in the midst of a financial crisis which has forced the department to lay off hundreds of workers and delay more than half of the pending roadway projects across the state.
Now, NCDOT continues to be in the news as further spiraling expenses add to the continuing financial crisis in the department. With the recent hit from Hurricane Dorian at an estimated cost of $40 million dollars, the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better.
More than 900 roadway improvement projects across the state have been affected by the current financial woes of the DOT. Whether property owners are affected by a direct condemnation claim from the NCDOT, or they have pending inverse condemnation Map Act lawsuits in Cleveland, Wake or Pender county, property owners should consult with legal counsel to determine how and whether their case may be affected by this ongoing situation.
