Temporary Ramp Closure 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 Project, which will extend the Triangle Expressway (Toll N.C. 540) from N.C. 55 Bypass to Interstate 40. 

The ramp from the southbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass to Toll N.C. 540 West is scheduled to temporarily close to traffic on February 4 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Drivers travelling on the southbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass will make a U-turn at Old Smithfield Road to access Toll N.C. 540 from the northbound 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.
