Why is this project necessary?

The four-lane, divided highway will be constructed to relieve congestion on existing U.S. 70 and provide motorists traveling to Raleigh or to the coast with an alternate route. Motorists traveling to I-40 through Clayton will have a faster less congested route.

Project Highlights:

  • It will be a new four-lane, divided Highway.
  • There will be access points at interchanges including I-40, N.C. 42, Ranch Road and the U.S. 70/U.S. 70 Business Split.
  • The new road will include 22 new bridges.
  • Once it is constructed, existing U.S. 70 will become U.S. 70 Business.
  • The 10.7-mile highway stretches from I-40 at mile marker 310 in Wake County to the U.S. 70/U.S. 70 Business split in Johnston County.
