Project History

The section of Dabney Drive from Coble Boulevard to U.S. 158 Business has been the subject of long-range planning at both the state and local level, including:

The Vance County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) states Dabney Drive is a thoroughfare that needs improvement to relieve existing congestion. The CTP recommends providing a one-way pair facility (two-lanes in each direction) from U.S. 158 Business to Cooper Drive, utilizing Corbitt Road to carry westbound traffic.

NCDOT is collecting information within the project study area for inclusion in the environmental document.

RESOURCES FOR PROPERTY OWNERS 


Although the N.C.
