What to Do If Your Land Is Being Condemned for Colington Road Improvements in Dare County?

R-5014 Colington Road Improvements project is 4.3 miles long and right of way acquisition will begin in late 2017/early 2018. Construction of the project is intended to begin in 2019.

The project will include:

  • Repaving of the road from the end of Colington Road to Colington Drive.
  • Widening of Colington Road from Colington Drive to Baum Bay Drive. There will be two 11-foot travel lanes with 10-foot shoulders (7-foot paved) on each side to accommodate bicycles. In addition, the road will be raised in areas to reduce flooding.
  • Construction of a new multi-use path from Baum Bay Drive to Bermuda Bay Boulevard on the south side of Colington Road. This multi-use path will tie into the existing path on the south side to the east of Bermuda Bay Boulevard. This section of Colington Road will also be resurfaced, but there will be no changes to the north side of the road.
  • Repaving of the road from Bermuda Bay Boulevard to just east of Veterans Drive. From this point to the U.S. 158 intersection, the proposed typical section on Colington Road includes 11- foot travel lanes, as well as two 11-foot left-turn lanes and an 11-foot right-turn lane eastbound at the U.S. 158 intersection.

It is important that Dare County residents are aware of their rights as property owners, should their land be “taken” by a city, state or governmental agency for the construction of R-5014 Colington Road Improvements.

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!
