Planning and development is underway on a proposed project to convert U.S. 1 (Capital Boulevard) to a controlled-access facility from I-540 in Raleigh to Purnell Road/Harris Road in Wake Forest.
This project is intended to improve traffic congestion and reduce travel times along U.S. 1.
A controlled-access highway is one on which access is provided only via ramps at interchanges. Some cross-streets will be grade-separated and no driveway connections will be allowed on U.S. 1.
Additional information about this project is available at the N.C. Department of Transportation's
public input website.
Public meetings are scheduled in October 2018 to gather feedback on conceptual designs. Additional meetings are planned for Spring 2019.
