Portions of this project are delayed as efforts to fight COVID-19 have greatly impacted the N.C. Department of Transportation's budget.
Planning and development are underway on a proposed project in Fayetteville to replace the open center turn lane with a median along 6.3 miles of Raeford Road (U.S. 401 Business) between Old Raeford Road and Robeson Street to improve safety.
The road’s reconstruction also will improve traffic flow and pedestrian access.
The project will be divided into three segments:
- Segment A: Old Raeford Road to Bunce Road
- Segment B: Bunce Road to Glensford Drive
- Segment C: Glensford Drive to Robeson Street
Each segment will be awarded separately as construction contracts, beginning with Old Raeford Road to Bunce Road in a contract scheduled to be awarded in the summer of 2020. The other segments would be built later.
This project is listed as Project U-4405 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $147.8 million.
