New Project to Begin on U.S. 74

January 7th, 2020

Major construction projects organized by the N.C. Department of Transportation and other state agencies can prove extremely frustrating for North Carolina residents whose properties will be affected by land condemnation.

The issues of land condemnation or seizure under eminent domain can be confusing. Despite the government’s limitation to take property without just compensation, there is limited law concerning how property owners can protect themselves from an inequitable exchange.

One such government project, Project R-5798, is set to begin. The project, which is intended for improvement of the roadway to U.S. 74 (Andrew Jackson Highway) from Graham Street to SR 1749 (Allen Pond Road), affects 80 parcels of land and is budgeted at $4.9 million.

Set to begin in late 2020 and extend until early 2021, the project will impact residents of Anson County. In an effort to help inform individuals residing here, the eminent domain and land condemnation lawyers at Henson Fuerst are hosting a free seminar. This seminar will serve as an opportunity for those facing condemnation to learn about their rights as property owners and to ask any questions they may have. It will touch on topics such as the following:

  • Land condemnation
  • What to do if your property is condemned
  • The value of your property
  • The condemnation process
  • What happens if you have a mortgage
  • Your rights as a landowner
  • Right-of-Way Agents
  • How lawyers get paid
  • What to bring with you to your attorney
  • Eminent domain

The seminar is to be held on Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 6 PM until 7:30 PM at the Hampton B Allen Library, located at 120 S Greene Street, Wadesboro, NC 28170.
