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.”
