This project is delayed as efforts to fight COVID-19 have greatly impacted the N.C. Department of Transportation's budget.
Planning is underway to make improvements to U.S. 70 (Glenwood Avenue) from west of T.W. Alexander Drive to I-540, in Durham and Wake counties.
The proposed work will address existing traffic congestion, future traffic congestion, poor traffic flow, the high number of vehicle crashes and will include adding interchanges at various locations. Traffic conditions are anticipated to worsen if no action is taken.
This project is listed as Project U-5518 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $338 million.
