The Interstate 95/Exit 173 Site is a prime commercial site located adjacent to Interstate 95 in Halifax County, North Carolina. The site is situated at the northeast corner of I-95 with immediate north and south access via Exit 173 and frontage along I-95 and US Highway 158 (Julian Allsbrook Highway). Exit 173 is the first major southbound exit after crossing into North Carolina from Virginia and a well-known stopover for travelers commuting north or south. The property is surrounded by significant retail and residential development and has excellent traffic exposure, location, and demographics. The site is within close proximity to major employers, Halifax Community College, and has the highest level of traffic exposure in the region. Recent market analyses support hotel and restaurant development at this site as I-95 represents the area’s strongest market for room night and food/beverage demand. For the third year in a row, the Roanoke Rapids-Weldon Area was ranked as one of the Top 100 Micropolitan Areas in the United States by Site Selection Magazine.
