Hampstead US 17 Improvements and Dan Owen Connector

Project #U-5732
Type: Roadway Improvements
Affected County: Pender

The North Carolina Department of Transportation US 17 Highway Improvements Project runs through Hampstead from Washington Acres Road to Sloop Point Road.  The project is a super street design project which will add medians and u-turns along the entire length of the project.  Many affected property owners will be losing land from the front of their parcels as right of way, in addition to frequent permanent utility easements and drainage easements.  The DOT is also building a new alignment connection – known as the Dan Owen Connector – between Dan Owen Road and Factory Road.  This project is intended to help ease traffic congestion along US 17 in Hampstead and has been designed to be completed along a similar time frame as the Hampstead Bypass project.

The Commissioner of Pender County recently announced the Hampstead Bypass project has now received full funding—and has approval to begin construction in 2020. A detailed article on the approval appears here. The project affects landowners in Pender and New Hanover counties.
