About The Event

This presentation will provide 1 PDH CDT credit as well as 1LU AIA (Once approved)

"The proposed Complete 540 project, also known as the Southeast Extension, would extend the Triangle Expressway from the N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to U.S. 64/U.S. 264 (I-87) in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area. ​​​

Transportation, social and economic demands and mobility considerations are the basis for additional transportation infrastructure in southeastern Wake County. The Complete 540 project would link Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Raleigh.

In addition to connecting several towns and cities, the project is expected to ease congestion on area roadways, including I-440, I-40, N.C. 42, N.C. 55 and Ten Ten Road.  Construction is likely to be completed in segments, and depending on available funding, each segment will likely have different construction timelines:

  • N.C. 55 Bypass to U.S. 401
  • U.S. 401 to I-40
  • I-40 to U.S. 64/264 Bypass (I-495)"

Visit the DOT website for more information on the projects.
