NCDOT Transportation Projects
Cape Fear Crossing Project
The Cape Fear Crossing is an approximately 9.5 mile proposed road and bridge over the Cape Fear River that would help improve traffic flow and enhance freight movements from U.S. 17 and I-140 in Brunswick County to U.S. 421 near the Port of Wilmington in southern New Hanover County.

Carolina Bays Parkway Extension Project
The N.C. Department of Transportation and the S.C. Department of Transportation are planning to extend the Carolina Bays Parkway (S.C. 31) from S.C. 9 in Horry County, South Carolina, across the North Carolina state line to U.S. 17 in Brunswick County. This project is expected to involve a multi-lane expressway that might involve existing roadways and areas on new locations. Click here to visit NCDOT’s website to learn more about this project.
One of Brunswick County’s top transportation priorities is the widening of NC 211 (Southport-Supply Road) to four-lanes from NC 87 (River Road) in Southport to US 17 (Ocean Highway) in Supply. This highway project has been divided into three (3) separate segments for funding purposes. The Brunswick County – NC 211 Project Map drafted and provided by NCDOT describes each project segment and provides milestones. This project information is subject to change as projects are funded and then considered to be a “committed project”.
