Where do I find a map of the proposed routes for the Military Cutoff Extension?

Wayne Faulkner

Detail from N.C. Department of Transportation map.

The N.C. Department of Transportation this summer selected the route for the Military Cutoff project, which will connect Market Street to the U.S. 17 Wilmington Bypass.

Two routes were considered, however, and the map you’ll find by clicking here.

It shows two those routes as well as other ones going farther north as part of the proposed Hampstead bypass.

You will find detailed maps of the actual route selected by the state by clicking here and entering 4751 in the search field to bring up “U-4751 Military Cutoff Road.” Click on “Show more” and you’ll find three clickable images of the route.

The four-mile, four-lane highway is aimed at easing traffic along Market between Ogden and Porters Neck, which handles 50,000 vehicles daily.

But 42 homes and businesses will have to be displaced to make way for the extension.


How much of Ogden Park will the Military Cutoff extension project destroy?

Will the bicycle/walking path be extended from Military Cutoff to Porters Neck?

    I imagine you’re talking about the second link, where it says to scroll down. If you search for 4751, it will appear. I’ll change the instructions.
