I-95 Corridor Planning & Finance Study

Project Overview

The 182-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in North Carolina was built between the 1950s and the 1980s as a four-lane interstate. Unlike other interstate highways in the state, large-scale rehabilitation or widening has been minimal on this aging interstate.

In 2009, the N.C. Department of Transportation determined that I-95 needed a more holistic evaluation from state line to state line for planning purposes. Thus, the I-95 Corridor Planning and Finance Study, mandated by the N.C. General Assembly, began to take root.

The initial study, as well as follow-up studies, encompassed the entire length of I-95 and provided NCDOT with a master plan for future improvements in North Carolina.

It's important to note that these are high-level studies and do not directly result in construction projects. The results are used as a basis to submit projects every two years in the Strategic Transportation Investments project submittal process.
