Not only has the N.C. 105 widening project been scaled back, the right-of-way acquisitions and the projected construction dates have been delayed, according to local and state transportation officials.
Originally, the widening of N.C. 105 to a four-lane highway was to take place in two sections – from Linville to Foscoe and from Foscoe to Boone. Now, the widening of N.C. 105 is only slated for the section from Foscoe to Boone.
The entire portion from Linville to Boone was estimated to cost just more than $103 million. With only the Foscoe to Boone section in play now, the estimated cost to widen is $40 million, according to David Graham, a transportation planner with High Country Council of Governments, who threw in a disclaimer that these are projected costs and subject to change.
Along most of the project corridor, the two-lane road would be widened to four lanes with a 23-foot grass median and varying shoulder width depending on the steepness of slopes along the edge of the road, according to project details on the NCDOT website. The bridge at Broadstone Road is still slated for replacement, which will cost about $1.4 million, according to Graham.
