I-95 Widening in Lumberton

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Overview

This project will widen eight miles of I-95 to a total of eight lanes in Lumberton between mile marker 13 (I-74) and just north of mile marker 21. The project also will upgrade three interchanges (exits 17, 19 and 20) with new bridges and ramps to modern design standards and ​​replace four other bridges.​
In late 2019, the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the N.C. Department of Transportation a $22.5 million grant through its Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) program toward the widening of I-95.

This is one of several long-term projects​ that would upgrade or widen I-95 in North Carolina​.​​

Project Funding

​The widening of this part of I-95 was awarded in 2021 as a design-build contract. The design-build process allows NCDOT to hire a team of designers and contractors responsible for the final design, right-of-way acquisition and construction of the project. The team can begin construction on one portion of the project while it finishes the design and right-of-way acquisition for other portions. This process helps identify innovative solutions, reduce property impacts and deliver the project more quickly.​
