Both commercial and residential properties will be taken by NCDOT as part of the Goldsboro highway widening project.

If your residential or commercial property is being taken as part of the Highway 13 widening in Goldsboro (NCDOT project #U-3609B), you do have legal options. While you can’t stop the government from taking your property under eminent domain, the Constitution guarantees that you are given “just compensation.” Additionally, the government’s taking may decrease the value of your remaining property, and you deserve compensation for that loss as well. Unfortunately, in many cases, the government will try to pay as little as possible for your taken property. Do NOT accept the government’s first offer for your taken property.
