The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) US 17 Hampstead Bypass project begins at a proposed interchange with the US 17 Wilmington Bypass in New Hanover County. The proposed roadway will extend northwest into Pender County to a proposed interchange with NC 210. From this interchange, the proposed bypass continues north on existing US 17 to Sloop Point Loop Road.
The Military Cutoff Road Extension portion of the project will begin at a proposed interchange at Military Cutoff Road and Market Street interchange and extend to a proposed interchange with the US 17 Wilmington Bypass, approximately midway between I-40 and Market Street.
Under the North Carolina Map Act, property owners have been restricted from using their property as they wish since 2011. These restrictions include the inability to:
- obtain building permits
- improve or substantially alter the land
- develop or subdivide the property
- sell land for full value
At HensonFuerst, we are currently representing land owners in both Pender and New Hanover County, and have filed lawsuits against the NCDOT for this inverse condemnation, alleging that the protected corridors are unconstitutional, improperly deprive landowners of the free use of their land, and have caused significant financial loss.
