Project Overview and Purpose
The Triangle Expressway will improve commuter mobility, accessibility and connectivity to western Wake County and Research Triangle Park while reducing congestion on the existing north-south routes that serve the Triangle Region, primarily NC 55 and NC 54.
The project’s cost is just over $1 billion and is the single largest transportation infrastructure project in North Carolina history.
Visit the Toll Operations Web site for information about the North Carolina toll road program.
The Triangle Expressway has seen continued growth in its first three months of becoming fully operational. Turnpike Authority Director of Toll Operations, Andy Lelewski and a satisfied commuter provide their insight into the road.
Take a virtual tour of the newly completed Triangle Expressway, now connecting RTP to Holly Springs. Learn how the Triangle Expressway and NC Quick Pass can save you valuable time and money on your daily commute.
