Bruce Siceloff (Raleigh News & Observer) writes about the effect of the Map Act Corridor on the property owners in the path.
The Map Act has affected development in the corridor. This is what the NCDOT wanted so it could control costs—at the expense of the property owners. He writes: “You can make out parts of the Orange Route on satellite photos – a vacant, green band bordered by subdivisions that have sprouted since the mid-1990s on both sides of what DOT calls the 540 protected corridor.”
