Planning and development are underway on a proposed project to upgrade about 24 miles of the U.S. 117 corridor to interstate standards between Interstate 40 in Sampson County and Interstate 795 in Wayne County. The project also includes a portion of Duplin County. Part of the upgrade may involve building new sections of roadway. The existing corridor includes N.C. 403, U.S. 117 Connector, U.S. 117, U.S. 13 and N.C. 581.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is seeking public input in the form of an online survey about the proposed project. Submit your feedback using NCDOT's online engagement platform.
