Proposed Widening of I-40 from I-85 to Durham County Line

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed widening of 11.4 miles of I-40 between I-85 and the Durham County Line in Orange County.

The interstate would be widened by one lane in each direction to bring the highway up to three lanes each way, improving traffic flow along that corridor and helping relieve heavy congestion that develops during commuter times.

The project would also improve the N.C. 86 exit and sections of that highway for several hundred feet both north and south of the interchange.  

The public meeting is scheduled for:

Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019
4-7 p.m.
Passmore Center
Great Hall
103 Meadowlands Drive
Hillsborough

Materials from the meeting are posted below:

The public may attend at any time during the public meeting hours, as no formal presentation will be made.
