Widening of Avent Ferry Road to a four-lane, median-divided roadway. The project has been divided into two phases.
Phase 1 - N.C. 55 to Piney Grove Wilbon Road
Summer 2018 Estimated Construction Start
Town staff was able to secure federal grant funding for design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction for 80 percent of projected costs with the town responsible for the remainder. Design was begun in 2015.
Phase 2 - Piney Grove Wilbon Road to Cass Holt Road
Construction Start Not Scheduled
Although Avent Ferry is a state-maintained road, the town has agreed to administer design, right-of-way acquisition and construction in order to begin construction more quickly. NCDOT will provide 100 percent of project funding, estimated at $8 million.
