Temporary Ramp Closures Scheduled for N.C. 55 Bypass as Part of Complete 540 Project

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Turnpike Authority is continuing construction of the southern portion of the Complete 540 Phase 1 Project, which will extend the Triangle Expressway (Toll N.C. 540) from N.C. 55 Bypass to Interstate 40. 

The loop from the northbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass to Toll N.C. 540 West will experience temporary overnight closures from on or around January 31 through February 4. The overnight closures will begin each night at midnight and last until 5:00 a.m. Drivers travelling on the northbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass will make a U-turn at East Williams Street to access Toll N.C. 540 from the southbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass. Signage will be in place directing motorists through the ramp closure detour.  

The ramp closure and associated detour are weather dependent. Drivers should slow down and pay extra attention when navigating the detour route.​
