RALEIGH, NC (NCDOT) -- The NC Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, June 28 regarding the proposed widening of NC 211 near St. James in Brunswick County.

The meeting will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the St. James Community Center, 4136 Southport-Supply Road SE in St. James. NCDOT representatives will be available to answer questions and receive comments about the proposed project. A formal presentation will begin at 7 p.m. The presentation will consist of an explanation of the proposed location and design, right-of-way acquisition, relocation requirements and procedures and the state-federal funding relationship.
