Hello! I will be moving to Wilmington at the end of this year and am looking at new construction options. I'm considering developments in Murrayville/Ogden area but am afraid the new Military Cutoff extension will be an issue. Both from a noise/construction standpoint and resale standpoint down the road. Specifically, I'm looking at Maple Ridge (Stevens Fine Homes) and Hanover Reserve (McKee Homes). Does anyone know if this is a state road with traffic lights or a major highway with exits ramps, etc. ? Any info on this road is appreciated. I would hate to purchase a home and then find out it will be bordering this road.
Thanks.

If you get a realestate agent they'll have all the maps and zones you need. Or if you go to ncdot they have the same maps that show you where it will go. If your far enough away from the bypass, your investment should only go up. Once the bypass is done they're doing medians on market st and doing a "beautification project" to clean it up. So 2020 or 2021 when everything's said and done it will only make house prices increase.

THank you both. Yes my agent is sending me info and getting the scoop of exact neighborhoods affected. I guess in the end a new highway means growth which is a good sign

The only area for growth left is northern wilm. So once that highways done hopefully they can do more businesses and less residential building. I doubt it though.
