What is a Superstreet Design?

January 4th, 2018

With the rapid growth and building development going on in North Carolina, figuring out ways to alleviate road congestion has been a top priority for the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).

A design they are now using is called synchronized streets, often referred to as superstreets. With a superstreet, traffic from a side street is prevented from going straight or making a left-hand turn. Instead, drivers must make a right-hand turn onto the superstreet where they can make a U-turn at a designated median as seen below.

This design improves safety as well as decreases travel time for motorists which is why it has been adopted by NCDOT for projects including the NC 150 Road Widening Project.

For this project and others like it, sometimes right-of-way acquisition is required in which the government may take land needed for a project from a property owner. For the final phase of the NC 150 Road Widening Project, over 40 properties have or will be impacted through right-of-way acquisition. This is an extremely sensitive issue for many land and home owners, and it is important that anyone affected by land condemnation is fairly treated and receives a fair amount for their property.

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