RALEIGH - The North Carolina Turnpike Authority is continuing construction of the southern portion of the Complete 540 project, which will extend the Triangle Expressway (Toll N.C. 540) from N.C. 55 Bypass to Interstate 40.
On or around July 21, contractors for the project have scheduled a temporary traffic shift on Bells Lake Road for Toll N.C. 540 construction. Bells Lake Road traffic will shift to an on-site temporary detour that is scheduled for approximately 12 months.
Signage will be installed advising travelers of the upcoming on-site detour. Drivers should use caution and slow down while traveling through work zones and detour routes.
