Potentially, 100 properties in New Hanover County and 36 in Brunswick County will have to be purchased for construction of the Cape Fear Skyway.
Owners of those parcels may soon be prohibited from developing them, but it may be years before the state has the money to buy the land.
Transportation officials released a map in August 2010 showing properties that fall in the route of the proposed 9.5-mile toll road, which includes a high-rise bridge over the Cape Fear River south of the Port of Wilmington.
