​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Overview

Planning and development are underway to widen 27 miles of I-95 to eight lanes south of Fayetteville between mile markers 13 (I-74) and 40, where I-95 and I-95 Business split, and upgrade the bridges, overpasses and interchanges to modern design standards. Most of the proposed work will be in Robeson County with the rest being in Cumberland County near Hope Mills.

In late 2019, the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the N.C. Department of Transportation a $22.5 million grant ​​through its Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) program for the widening of this segment of I-95.

Project Funding

The widening of this part of I-95 will be broken into two design-build contracts. A design-build contract is an alternative way to develop a project by promoting an innovative design and a more efficient completion of the project. ​

The first contract covers mile markers 22-40 and is identified as Project I-5987. The second contract covers mile markers 13-22 and is identified as Project I-6064. Below is the projected cost breakdown for the two contracts.​
