Project History

‚ÄčIn the early 2000s, North Carolina began studying options for making much-needed improvements to I-95, including widening the highway. The N.C. General Assembly also studied the feasibility of introducing tolls to raise money for the improvements, but that idea proved unpopular and was not adopted.

By 2017, the N.C. Department of Transportation estimated it would cost about $5 billion and require several years to widen and upgrade the entire 182-mile section of I-95 within the state. Since then, NCDOT has begun prioritizing sections to modernize first based on data that include traffic volumes and crash rates.
