Project Overview & Purpose
The 182-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in North Carolina was built between the late 1950s and 1980 as a four-lane interstate highway. There have not been any large-scale improvements or widening of I-95, and several of its bridges and ramps no longer meet modern interstate design standards.
Corridor Improvement Projects
NCDOT intends to widen the interstate to either six or eight lanes, replace bridges and interchanges where necessary, and make other improvements so the highway is more resilient against floodwaters. The upgrades will improve safety, ease congestion, and help ensure the highway can manage anticipated growth in traffic.
Also listed are smaller funded projects that will upgrade I-95 with taller and wider bridges that will allow for future widening.
