Division Three of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has selected international consulting design firm Stantec to provide analysis and engineering services for the Hampstead Bypass from I-140 to US 17 north of Hampstead. Corridor improvements to the existing US 17 in Hampstead are also included in Stantec’s design services. These projects, totaling $250 million in construction, will greatly improve north-south mobility along the North Carolina coastline north of Wilmington, and will address safety and congestion issues along US 17 in Hampstead. An accelerated design schedule for these projects should result in construction beginning no later than Fall 2020.

The Bypass will consist of a 12 mile, four-lane median divided freeway with four interchanges, four overpasses, and a total of 16 bridges. The design will require avoidance and/or minimizing environmental impacts to wetlands, streams, and threatened plant and animal species. Safety improvements to five miles of US 17 in Hampstead will include a new median to control left turns, two-phase signalized u-turn bulbs, and sidewalks on each side. For further information, visit NCDOT’s project website.

Troy Peoples, Stantec’s vice president of transportation said, “It is a pleasure to work with clients who share our desire to design with the community’s interest in mind while also maintaining environmental sensitivity.” Chad Kimes, Deputy Division 3 Engineer for NCDOT noted, “This project sets an example on how every project should be designed and delivered. We are very proud of our entire team’s effort to make this Bypass and median project a reality.”

Stantec has a long history providing consulting services in North Carolina, and maintains offices throughout the state in Winston-Salem, Raleigh, and Charlotte. The firm has professionals in North Carolina who provide a wide range of services, such as infrastructure design, planning, landscape architecture, environmental services, urban design, and project and program management.
