Citizens encouraged to provide feedback
RALEIGH - Three public meetings are scheduled next week regarding the proposed Complete 540 project, and the NC Department of Transportation is encouraging citizens to attend and provide feedback on the possible routes that are currently undergoing study.
The Complete 540 project would extend the Triangle Expressway from the N.C. 55 Bypass in Apex to the U.S. 64/U.S. 264 Bypass in Knightdale, completing the 540 Outer Loop around the greater Raleigh area.
In addition, Complete 540 would provide a more direct route and quicker access to Research Triangle Park, the Raleigh-Durham Airport, and major employment and activity centers along 540 for rapidly growing communities south and east of Raleigh.
