Nashville-Rocky Mount Projects

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Project Overview

​Planning and development are under way on proposed plans to widen stretches of Eastern Avenue, North Old Carriage Road and Sunset Avenue between Nashville and Rocky Mount. 

Additionally, there is another proposed plan to convert the Sunset Avenue bridge over Interstate 95 into a new interchange – a long-sought project by local officials and business leaders in Nash County.

The projects would ease congestion, improve safety for drivers and pedestrians and plan for expected growth in traffic.
