N.C. Department of Transportation – Widening of Odell Road
The Board of Alderman is not in full support of this project. There was heavy discussion on the economic impacts and right-of-way acquisition that could possibly take place.
Timeline: Construction to begin in 2019
Cost: Est. 7.9 million
Project Description: Odell Road will be widened from the current two lanes to four lanes. Raised 23-foot median will be constructed. Once construction is completed, Fort Bragg will connect the new road. The purpose of the project is to support a new Access Control Point (ACP) proposed for Fort Bragg.

What Was Said:
Mayor Chris Rey – “The board doesn’t have a warm and fuzzy about this project. The key part is the economic impact.”
