Overnight Intermittent On-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 Project, which will extend the Triangle Expressway (Toll N.C. 540) from N.C. 55 Bypass to Interstate 40. 

The loop on-ramp from the northbound lanes of the N.C. 55 Bypass to Toll N.C. 540 West is scheduled to temporarily close to traffic overnight on or around the nights of April 18 through May 10. The loop on-ramp will close intermittently each night between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. the following morning.

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