Horse Pen Creek Road Widening – GDOT

On August 14, 2013, new designs and maps were unveiled by the Greensboro Department of Transportation (GDOT) at an informal “drop-in” session.  This session allowed property owners to review maps and planning documents. Shiloh Daum from Sever Storey attended the event to discuss the project with property owners and GDOT staff.  In addition, during Sever Storey’s informational seminar on August 21 at 6:30 pm provided additional information about the project scope, these updated maps, and expected schedules for the right of way acquisition.

Horse Pen Creek Road Project Map

The plans that GDOT unveiled to the public reflected recent changes to the project design and scope. In particular, the project has been reduced in its width, mainly by narrowing the median and other features.  The newly widened Horse Pen Creek Road will still have 4 lanes of travel and two sidewalks for foot traffic.  There will also be dedicated bike lanes on each side of the road way. This revised design will lessen the impact to some property owners on Horse Pen Creek Road, but many will still lose their property through eminent domain and condemnation. 

Typical Section - Horse Pen Creek Road Widening Project

The Greesnboro Urban Loop project is being managed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), while the Horse Pen Creek Road widening project will be handled by the local Greensboro DOT the actual condemning authority (aka: “condemnor”). City designers have stated that they are approximately 75% toward completing the final designs, but they have not yet compiled a comprehensive list of all property owners affected by the widening of Horse Pen Creek Road. 


If you are facing acquisition of a portion or all of your property as a result of this project please feel free to contact Shiloh Daum, Esq. one of the eminent domain landowner attorneys of Sever Storey at 888-318-3761.


What are the unique issues that face commercial property owners in condemnation that can make all the difference?



Landowners forget this one thing when dealing with utility companies that want an easement across their land.
