This new freeway forms part of the Triangle Expressway and extends approximately 13 miles. The new six lane, median-divided toll road provides a high-speed, multi-lane controlled-access road to accommodate increasing transportation demand in Western Wake County.
The structure scope includes 34 bridges built at 24 different sites over the 13 miles of proposed roadway. Of these, 14 are mainline bridges and 10 are for ramps. Also included are numerous retaining walls and noise walls.
This project was unique in North Carolina as it was the first toll road in the state and the largest contract ever awarded by NCDOT.
