NCDOT is working on two projects to improve traffic along I-40 at the I-40/I-440/U.S. 1/U.S. 64 interchange. This is a survey to gather information for the projects.
Project I-5701: Addition of lanes on I-40
Addition of lanes on I-40 between the I-440/U.S. 64 interchange to Lake Wheeler Road (S.R. 1370). The purpose of this project is to improve the traffic carrying capacity of I-40. This project is included in the current State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and has a scheduled construction start date of 2022.
Project I-5703: Interchange Reconstruction
Project No. I-5703 will reconstruct the existing I-40/I-440/U.S. 1/U.S. 64 interchange. The existing interchange operation do not meet an acceptable level of service and operations will continue to decline with the increasing travel demand projected at this location. Reconstruction of this interchange will improve critical traffic operations. Additional right-of-way may be needed, depending on the selected design alternative. Project I-5703 is also included in the current STIP with a scheduled construction start date of 2022.
RESOURCES FOR PROPERTY OWNERS
Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed. The following information explains right of way acquisition and answers questions about the process.
