Eminent Domain: US-70 Improvements in James City
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to make changes to improve traffic along a 5.1-mile stretch of US-70 in James City. Improvements to US-70 will be made east of Thurman Road to the Neuse River Bridge in James City in Craven County. While construction doesn’t start until 2021, the DOT has started property acquisition on this project as of Spring 2020
NCDOT is taking property for the James City US-70 improvement project under the power of eminent domain. If your property is being taken, contact an experienced North Carolina eminent domain lawyer at Riddle & Brantley for a FREE, no-obligation consultation. We would love to help you get maximum compensation for your taken property.

There is no obligation and you won’t pay any attorney fees unless we get you more compensation for your property in James City or greater Craven County.
What areas of James City will be affected by the US-70 improvement project?
Work would eliminate the following signalized intersections along US-70 in the James City area:
- Williams Road
- Airport Road
- Grantham Road
- Taberna Way
- Thurman Road
The US-70 improvements in James City are part of larger improvements to the US-70 corridor in eastern North Carolina. This corridor is one of the most heavily trafficked highways in the east side of the state. Among other important purposes, US-70 connects Goldsboro and Havelock, home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, respectively.
NCDOT anticipates that improvements to US-70, including US-70 improvements in James City, will significantly benefit economic activity and development throughout Craven County and eastern North Carolina.
The project is anticipated to be completed in 2023.
“My property is being taken. What now?”
The government is required to pay “just compensation” for your taken property. However, you can be certain that the government will try to pay as little as possible. Do NOT simply accept the government’s first offer. You may be entitled to significantly more compensation for property taken as part of the US-70 project in James City and we may be able to help.
Justice Counts for North Carolina property owners.
For a FREE consultation with our NC eminent domain lawyers, please call 1-800-525-7111.

“The DOT’s goal is to get your property for as little as possible. But you deserve more than that. You deserve just compensation. You deserve justice.”
