Raleigh, NC: Getting the “Complete 540” Project Underway

Posted by Infra on Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

The Complete 540 study for the southeast extension of the Triangle Expressway is once again underway, following a two-year delay. The Complete 540 project will provide a more direct route and quicker access to RTP, the RDU airport, and major employment and activity centers along NC 540 for rapidly growing communities south and east of Raleigh. Completing 540 will connect the final section of the outer loop from Holly Springs to Knightdale.

A law passed by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2011 limited NCDOT’s ability to comply with certain federal requirements. Recently passed legislation repealed that law, allowing the study to move forward.

NCDOT has resumed work on the project, and the study will now focus on collecting information about the benefits and impacts of various alternatives. The next step is for NCDOT to present information and maps of the alternatives at three public meetings in mid October. For more information, visit
