Project Highlights

The N.C. Department of Transportation, in November 2016, identified different design options – referred to as alternatives – for each section of the project.

Each section will be studied as part of a Categorical Exclusion – a National Environmental Policy Act document that evaluates a project's potential impacts to the natural and human environments.

Section A (U.S. 70 corridor upgrades between T.W. Alexander Drive and Brier Creek Parkway)

Two alternatives are being studied:

  • A freeway design, in which traffic would be able to access U.S. 70 only at interchanges
  • An expressway design, in which traffic would be able to access U.S. 70 at interchanges, intersections and driveways

Section B (U.S. 70/T.W. Alexander Drive interchange)

Two alternatives are being studied:

  • Alternative 1 would involve building an interchange at the existing intersection
  • Alternative 2 would involve building an interchange at the future Aviation Parkway Extension and an overpass at the existing intersection

Section C (U. S. 70/Brier Creek Parkway interchange)

Alternative 1 and Alternative 2 propose the same type of interchange configurations at the existing intersection.
