U.S. 168 in Moyock to be Studied for Safety Improvements

MOYOCK – The N.C. Department of Transportation will soon be performing a feasibility study of the U.S. 168 corridor from the Virginia state line to the railroad crossing south of Moyock.

The busy five-mile section of highway in the northeast corner of the state will be studied for possible safety and efficiency improvements to intersections, sightlines and access control.

N.C. 168 is a vital corridor for the region, and NCDOT is working to address the highway’s current and future travel needs. The study will examine accident history, congestion patterns and access management. The study will also explore the feasibility of possible roadway improvements, including:

  • Reduced conflict intersections
  • Signal improvements
  • Minimization of left turns using divided medians
  • Increased shoulder width
  • Pedestrian accommodations
While studying the corridor, NCDOT will evaluate data and determine the best engineering concepts and alternatives that address concerns along the route. As options are developed, they will be shared with the public for comments and revisions.
The study is expected to be complete in early 2025. The preferred alternative that is developed during this process will be pursued as funding allows.
