Press Release - Re-naming and Change of Address on Hwy 24

Proposal for Re-Naming of Roads and Change of Addresses on Hwy 24

Several years ago, North Carolina Department of Transportation (DOT) started the planning and subsequent construction of rebuilding Highway 24 from the City of Clinton west through Roseboro to the Cumberland County line in Autryville. As a result, some roads have been split in two, some roads remain unnamed, and some addresses do not conform to the County’s Ordinance and the National Emergency Numbering Association (NENA) guidelines. 

For the past six months, the County’s Road Naming Committee and the County Addressing Coordinator have been working diligently to identify each road and address that has been impacted. A summary of changes along with maps and listings, is available for the public to review and is posted on the County’s website (, County’s Facebook page, and the County’s Emergency Services Facebook page. 

The Road Naming Committee has attempted to recommend as few changes as possible to minimize the impact on the residents. However, some roads will have to be re-named, and some houses and buildings will need to be re-numbered. We understand that this may be inconvenient, but the main priority is for emergency responders to locate and reach residents in a timely and efficient manner in the event of an emergency.  

Residents who may be impacted by these changes are encouraged to review the provided documents. The documents were created to help residents understand the proposed changes. If you have any questions after reviewing the documents, please contact Sampson County Emergency Services 911 Addressing at or call 910-592-8996. 

The Sampson County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, April 3, 2023, to hear the renaming recommendations. The meeting will be held at 6:00 pm at 437 Rowan Rd., Clinton, NC, in the County Auditorium of the Sampson County Board of Education.   

If the recommendations are approved by the Board of Commissioners, Sampson County Emergency Services encourages those who are impacted to ensure your house or business numbers are updated and clearly visible from the roadway for all emergency responders.  Please consider notifying all businesses and delivery services of your new address to allow for proper and timely delivery of mail and packages. Sampson County will notify the respective U.S. Post Offices of the address changes. 

For residents who are not impacted by any proposed change, this is a good opportunity to check on your house number to ensure it is visible, not blocked, and the numbers have not faded over time. Clearly visible numbers, both during the day and at night, on the roadway and on the structure, can help save time for first responders to locate you in the event of an emergency.
