The North Carolina Department of Transportation recently announced that after much delay, it is going to proceed with the Monroe Bypass. This will be a 20 mile toll four lane road that runs approximately from Stallings to almost Marshville. (See Map). The NCDOT has created a flyover of what the proposed road will look like. The project website may be found by clicking here.
If you are property owner in the path of the new road, you have the absolute right to be paid for your property considering its highest and best use. You may want to seek legal advice before entering into any agreement with the NCDOT.
Common questions are:
- Do I have to accept the State’s offer?
- Do I need an appraiser?
- How long does it take to go to Court?
- Do I need an attorney?
- When do I get paid?
- If there is mortgage on the property, how is that handled?
- What if the roadway impacts other property I own nearby?
