I-40 Widening from Southeast Raleigh to Clayton: Project Details
Planning and design are underway to widen a 12-mile stretch of Interstate 40 between Southeast Raleigh and Clayton, North Carolina. This is an important stretch of highway that provides access to I-95 and is a primary route to eastern North Carolina.
An estimated 35.6 million vehicles traveled this stretch of I-40 in 2015, and traffic delays and congestion are common. NCDOT states that the project will improve traffic flow and safety and reduce morning and afternoon rush hour delays. According to NCDOT, traffic along the I-40 corridor between SE Raleigh and Clayton is expected to increase 65 percent by 2040.
According to NCDOT, projects I-5111 and I-4739 also include improvements to the major interchange connecting I-40 and NC-42 in Clayton.
Property acquisition by NCDOT is ongoing.

“I-40 interstate widening between Southeast Raleigh and Clayton is a major project and those whose property is taken by the DOT deserve maximum compensation.”
–Chris Beacham, eminent domain attorney at Riddle & Brantley
You Deserve Maximum Compensation
Unfortunately, the government will try to pay as little as possible for property taken as part of the SE Raleigh to Clayton I-40 widening and interchange improvement project. However, the Constitution guarantees your right to “just compensation,” which means you deserve fair market value for your taken property.
Do NOT simply accept the government’s first offer for your property.
At Riddle & Brantley, our eminent domain team is led by attorney Chris Beacham, who previously handled eminent domain matters for the North Carolina Department of Justice as assistant attorney general. Our team has recovered millions of dollars collectively in additional compensation for property owners who have had their property taken by the government (see disclaimer below).
“[Riddle & Brantley] increased my final settlement payment by 33 percent.”
